Show #241 – October Birthdays

Now that we have an official spreadsheet of Bakersfield-esque birthdays, we made sure we did some celebrating.  Some folks are still alive, some are not, but the music they left us is the best.  This show, we celebrated Bonny Owens, Chris Gaffney, Susan Raye, Tommy Collins, and Marty Stuart.  And then we played some old, some new, and all of it fun.
