Show #156 – Cowboys!

We typically go into each show asking each other if we have a theme for tonight.  Usually, the answer is nope.  Sometimes, there are very obvious themes we must address:  Buck Owens’ birthday, Merle Haggard’s birthday, Gram Parson’s birthday…  But most of the time, no theme.  On more than one occasion, we play a song and that one song gets us immediately into theme mode.  Tonight it took Dale Watson’s “Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies” that set us on the path of a “cowboy” theme.  Lots of cowboy songs.  We had fun.  Yippe Kai Yay!

Show #155 – Waylon Jennings Birthday

We’re big fans of Waylon.  One of us more than the other, but that’s only because that love of Waylon goes way, way, way back.  Waylon was born on June 15, 1937.  We got the show started with a little tribute to Waylon and then later played a couple songs that Waylon popularized and were also performed by Linda Ronstadt (Only Mama That’ll Walk The Line) and Nashville West (Mental Revenge).  Dave Gleason wrote his song “Blue Side of The World” as a tribute to the ’60s era Waylon Jennings.
