Show #202 – April 6 is Merle Haggard Day

Well, if it isn’t, it should be. Here is a legend who was both born, and passed away, on the same day. Such an iconic voice, and songs from the heart, soul and brain.

It was another fun show in the studio and the power did not go out, (although the lights flickered) and a major wind advisory was warning of gusts up to 60mph.

Some great tunes, weather and surf advisories and plenty of calls into the studio to talk of “dancing around the house,” “branches falling into the roadways,” “power out,” or “just to say hi.”

We lost Merle last year, and a host of other other folks. Thanks for listening, checking out the archive and the blog.
