Show #229 – Highway of Heartaches

“Highway of Heartaches,” will launch on Tuesday, April 24th at 8:30pm. Hosts Smelley Kelley and Owen Bly are not strangers to the KWMR airwaves, having been guests on “Bakersfield and Beyond” numerous times over the years.

When Amanda learned that they were floating a radio show for broadcast to a Carson City LPFM station, she struck while the griddle was sizzling, and the lads could not be more excited to bring their mix of classic country, honky tonk and banter to the eclectic music line-up on KWMR. We can’t wait! Smelley and Owen joined Mike and me last night. You can listen to the archive HERE.

We really dropped the ball by not recognizing the anniversary of not only Merle Haggard’s birth, but his death on the very same date (April 6). Feel free to throw tomatoes at your radio. We did play a few tunes by the legendary Bakersfield Sound pioneer, and came clean with our shortcomings.

The show was a fun mix of brand new twangy tunes, our interview with Owen and Smelley, a dive into country music history, and then some solid tracks to wrap up the show. Thanks for reading, listening and enjoying great music.
