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?

Show #211 – Glen Campbell and Dogs

When we were kids, we always liked Glen Campbell songs. They were hits, and his career was amazing. Glen Campbell was one of the most successful musicians in the biz, selling over 45 million albums, recording with The Champs and the Beach Boys, a legendary member of The Wrecking Crew, some of the most engaged session musicians that ever recorded music. Glen was also golfing buddies and a close friend to Alice Cooper, both having kicked bad cocaine habits and cleaned up their lives, while staying in the business. Glen Campbell had a strong Christian faith and a loving, close family. He passed away from Alzheimer’s disease, died on Tuesday, August 8 in Nashville. He was 81.

The first 30 minutes of Bakersfield and Beyond was dedicated to Glen Campbell and his musical legacy. Even prior to the passing of Campbell, this show was set to be a tribute. Last week, Robert Price, author of “The Bakersfield Sound: How a Generation of Displaced Okies Revolutionized American Music” lost his longtime canine companion, Sir Edgar. The rest of the show wandered into the “beyond” realm and literally “went to the dogs.” We spoke with Robert at 8pm to discuss Glen Campbell’s connection to Bakersfield and how important dogs are in our lives.
