Show #185 – Buck Owens

Alvis Edgar Owen went up to his ma and pa when he was 3 or 4 years old and announce his name was now Buck – just like the name of the donkey on the family farm.  This Buck went on to much bigger things in life than that donkey could have managed, and became known world-wide for the hard driving, tear it up blend of country music that came out of Bakersfield, CA.  Tomorrow, August 12 would have been Buck’s 87th birthday and we celebrated with a mix of Buck songs and far reaching influences and covers.  Hope you could listen.
