Thursday night: An Interview with Homer Joy

You will want to tune in to Bakersfield and Beyond this Thursday, May 14 for an interview with Homer Joy, great performer, singer and songwriter of the Bakersfield Sound. Homer Joy wrote and originally performed the song Streets of Bakersfield, which was later performed by Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam. Homer will be touring this summer and we can’t wait to talk to with him and hear about his experiences, his new music and his never ending zest for music! Call numbers in West Marin are 90.5 FM and 89.9 FM and if you want to listen on the web it’s www.kwmr.org. Time? 6:30 – 8:30 PM Pacific Time. We look forward to having you on board for this great show. Of course I believe we will be joined by Dr. BLT as well – who is prolific as always and continues to pump out some great tunes.

  1. Don’t be fooled when you read about Homer and I being stranded and miles away from a phone on Thursday night when you come across the blog story Jerry’s Trout Pizza at Bakersfield Sound Underground tomorrow or Thursday. It’s strictly a work of fiction. 🙂

  2. I’m not sure how much time you’ll have for music. Homer has some great stories to tell, and I’m speaking from personal experience when I say some of these stories are long—long, yes, but every word and every story is golden.

    I do have a few song requests, if you have time. Something tells me you’ll be playing Streets of Bakersfield, so I won’t need to request that one.

    If you could play one of these:

    “John Law” Homer Joy
    “She’s Gone, Gone, Gone,” Lefty Frizzell
    “L.A. International Airport,” Susan Raye
    “Diesel Smoke Dangerous Curves” by Red Simpson
    “A Tombstone Every Mile,” Dick Curless
    “Six Days On The Road,” Dave Dudley
    “Act Naturally,” The Beatles

    and, last but not least, “How Far is it To Bakersfield and Beyond,” by, ah, what is that guys, name? I would be very grateful. I’d like to dedicate it to my daughter, Kassidy if you get around to playing it.

    Thanks for that list, Bruce. I didn’t see it until the day after the show, but we’ll get those songs together for a future show!
