Show #207 – Hee Haw, Act Naturally, and A Bridge

Yesterday, 6/15/17 was the anniversary of a few different things that lend themselves well to the music that we celebrate on Bakersfield and Beyond.

Historic points that inspired our playlist this evening. We filled in with mostly older tunes indicative of the Bakersfield Sound.

In 1969 “Hee Haw” makes its prime-time debut on CBS-TV, replacing the controversial “Smothers Brothers” show. The cast includes: Buck Owens, Roy Clark, Minnie Pearl and Grandpa Jones, among others. The first guests: Charley Pride and Loretta Lynn.

In 1963 Buck Owens collects his first #1 single in Billboard with “Act Naturally.”

in 1937 Waylon Jennings is born in Littlefield, Texas. A protege of Buddy Holly, he becomes a leader in the Outlaw movement of the 1970s alongside his occasional duet partner, Willie Nelson. Jennings joins the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2001.

In 2017 Caltrans holds a public hearing on the process and potential option for replacement of a local bridge in Point Reyes Station.
