Show #160 – Honky Tonkin’

Theme time again on Bakersfield & Beyond.  This time it was Honky Tonk:  songs featuring “honky tonk” some way in the title or songs that mentioned “honk tonk” in the lyrics.  And that’s what we did.  A celebration of the honky tonk.  The Wickipedia quick definition of “honky tonk” is a bar that also serves up a country music offering along side alcoholic beverages.  I would also consider bars that feature swinging jazz, blues, rock – anything foot stompin’ – to fall in the realm of the honkey tonk.
