Show #149 – Celebrating Buck Owens

Alvis Edgar Owens, Jr – aka Buck Owens – passed away on March 25, 2006 after having his favorite dinner of chicken fried steak and taking the stage for one last performance at his Crystal Palace.  A performer to the end, he always did want to give the people who came to see him as good a show as he could muster.  And he didn’t disappoint on his last show.  Here’s to you Buck!
