Show #159 – Buck Owens!

Edgar Alvis Owens, Jr. would have celebrated his birthday his 86th birthday August 12, 2015.  To celebrate with fans of Buck Owens, we dedicated our 2 hours of Bakersfield & Beyond yesterday to his music.  Songs he sang, songs he wrote, tribute songs to Buck, songs evoking his spirit.  We hope we did his memory justice.  Here’s the playlist and some clips of Buck performing.  Because performing is what drove Buck.
