Show #212 – Buck Owens!

This was a truly Bakersfield….and Beyond show. Buck Owens’ birthday was August 12th, and he would have been 88 years old in 2017. We are sorry we missed him; he passed away in 2006. It’s not difficult to fill almost an entire show with Buck tunes, people singing Buck’s tunes, Buck singing other people’s tunes etc. And that is just what we did. Mike stumbled across a cool tune called “Space to Bakersfield,” that is interesting. West Marin has an iconic mountain in our surroundings called Black Mountain (where KWMR buried our time capsule one year ago). Well, this Canadian band has a tune called “Space to Bakersfield.” Who woulda thunk?
