Show #195 – So Long 2016, Hello 2017!

With the help of our buddy Robert Price from Bakersfield, we ended 2016 with our 195th show. Robert is the Editor of the Bakersfield Californian newspaper and the author of “The Bakersfield Sound, How a Generation of Displaced Okies Revolutionized Music.” We are tickled since Robert found it in his heart to include “Bakersfield and Beyond” in this publication. It is in its third printing and has been picked up by Heyday Press for this printing. For a self-published book, it has done incredibly well.

It was a fun evening of song and banter on KWMR. Happy New Year from Amanda and Mike! And remember, “take it easy.”
