Bakersfield Music

We start off the show with Canadian Tim Hus’ song, “Bakersfield Music.”  In it, he references Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.  In particular, he references songs of Buck and Merle.  Tonight’s first half hour was dedicated to some of the songs that are referenced in “Bakersfield Music.”
