May 13 playlist and update

Amanda was missed during last night’s show.  She did, however, give me a few requests and then I sprinkled a little Bakersfield and a little Beyond.  Talked to Dr. BLT, aka Dr. Bruce L. Thiesen, who introduced his song Washed Out In Nashville Tonight, a song about the troubles Nashville has been going through as of late with the flood.  Recording artist, transplanted to Nashville from Bakersfield, had contacted Bruce about the floods and in Dr. BLT’s inimitable style, penned a new tune about the floods.  So, here’s the playlist with some youtube clips to help make your day go a little faster.  Happy Friday and thanks for listening.

On this week in 1975, Gary Stewart’s She’s Actin’ Single (I’m Drinkin’ Doubles), became his only #1 hit on Billboard.

“Let us walk through this barren desert in search of truth and some pointy boots and maybe a few snack crackers.”

I like this clip of Wanda Jackson.  She starts talking all sweet and then rips into Hard Headed Woman.  Sweet with a lot of spice.
