Show #196 – Bakersfield Hall of Fame

A few months after we started this show in 2009, we, with our spouses, made the trek to Bakersfield to see Dave Alvin & The Guilty Women at Fishlips.  We also caught the Buckaroos at the Crystal Palace while eating chicken fried steak as big as a dinner plate.  We also were invited to check out the ASR – a state of the art recording studio in Bakersfield.  During our last show, we learned from Robert Price that the ASR building was purchased and now houses the Bakersfield Music Hall of Fame.  The inaugural class of inductees is going to be inducted on January 27.  The inaugural class includes:  Billy Mize, Buck Owens, Bonnie Owens, Merle Haggard, and Red Simpson.  These artist’s music was our theme tonight.
