Alex Battles sounds a little like Steve Goodman.
Avatar 7:05pm Becky:

Hey errybody!
  7:07pm cheri:

great to hear from you again, becky as always!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm pacific standard simon:

Hi Becky & honkies!
Avatar 7:07pm Becky:

Thanks, cheri!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:09pm pacific standard simon:

Can't be a lot of country records with xylophones.
Avatar 7:11pm Becky:

simon, I think they occupied the same dusty corner of the recording studio as the baritone saxophones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:13pm pacific standard simon:

Love that Brenda Lee.
  7:13pm marc:

Siri knew what that song was
  7:15pm cheri:

becky, ever since you came I've been digging these honky tonk tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm pacific standard simon:

Got my fingers crossed that this show is on the Fall schedule.
  7:18pm P-90:

@pss: You and me both, Brother.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Ĩkє:

I don't recall any country show ever getting benched. All the country DJs have left of their own accord, as far as I know. So make of that what you will. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm pacific standard simon:

Saviour guided the fortunes of Fortune's microphone.
Avatar 7:20pm Becky:

I think what Ike is saying is that y'all better be REAL nice to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm pacific standard simon:

Yes Ma'am!
  7:22pm cheri:

pss & p-90 i feel the same way,, becky we ARE nice to you.
Avatar 7:23pm Becky:

Of course you are, cheri. I'm just kidding around. I'd be honored to return in the fall.
  7:24pm P-90:

@ DJ Becky: Have I had taken the opportunity to mention how talented and beautiful you are?
  7:26pm P-90:

Orbison's one of those cats who's gotten a tremendous amount of recognition, but I still feel like he"s still a bit underrated...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:29pm pacific standard simon:

Those fellows need cowboy hats.
Avatar 7:33pm Becky:

P-90, I'm right there with you. I think it's because he blurs the genre lines...when I get home, I'm gonna watch The Fastest Guitar Alive!
  7:33pm LKN:

Silver fox time!
Avatar 7:34pm Becky:

(which is a film that blurs the lines of sanity, really)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:34pm pacific standard simon:

That's the one where Roy shoots people with his guitar?
Avatar 7:35pm Todd-o-phonic:

I'm in Hillbilly Heaven!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm chris:

gosh, Larry Steele has his finger on the pulse of my inner dialog
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm chris:

as does Charlie Rich, for that matter
  7:37pm P-90:

Also, Roy's just been there FOREVER. Maybe so much a part of the landscape that all the contributions and influences in his big body of work have been taken a bit for granted...?
Avatar 7:39pm Becky:

Yeah, I mean, he did have comebacks in every decade...
Avatar 7:40pm dale:

good show - thumbs up for early charlie rich.
  7:41pm P-90:

Now I'm gonna have to check out "Fastest Guitar Alive" , I'm up for ANYthing that "blurs the lines of sanity".
  7:42pm cheri:

thanks very much becky, but i have to take my leave now, see you next week!
Avatar 7:42pm Becky:

P-90 - it's ABSURD. I think he plays a Confederate soldier? And there's a song called "Good Time Party"? It's been a while...but I recommend imbibing while watching.
Avatar 7:44pm dale:

who's the fastest gee-tar alive? thumbs carlisle is pretty quick on the draw.
Avatar 7:44pm JakeGould:

Oh… These answer songs…
Avatar 7:45pm JakeGould:

@Ĩkє: So what you are saying is country shows don’t leave, they just fade away? This show is bright and new and I don’t want it to fade too soon. Fingers crossed in my mind.
  7:46pm P-90:

Imbibing. Roger that.
  7:47pm LKN:

Buck sounds good always. You got a perfect show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm pacific standard simon:

I can't get enough Waylon, so thanks for the tip.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:49pm pacific standard simon:

I hope Red's not singing about Minnie Pearl.
Avatar 7:49pm Becky:

simon, the album is called Live at JD's that I was thinking of. Really nice stuff.
Avatar 7:51pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Hooooo-wee! Mr. Don Rich!
Avatar 7:52pm JakeGould:

@Becky: Lots of nice fiddle starts in this set. Kudos for good fiddle start taste!
Avatar 7:54pm Becky:

Thanks, Jake!
  7:55pm cheri:

i loved the show, becky
  7:56pm P-90:

Possible topic for next week: The new Broadway-bound "Hee-Haw" musical has been getting honest-to goodness rave word-of-mouth. Like no shit, they're talking about a potential multi-Tony Award winning show. Not being ironic or facetious here.
Avatar 7:56pm Becky:

P-90, are you freakin' serious?
Avatar 7:57pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Hey! It's the Jack White I can listen to!
Avatar 7:57pm Becky:

Wow, I have to look into this.
  7:58pm P-90:

Thanks for the "other" Jack White. And for everything else. Have a great week.
  7:59pm Tommy:

Becky, you brought it !!! again !!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm pacific standard simon:

Another fine show, Becky, thanks for doing it!
  7:59pm P-90:

I said: NO shit.
Avatar 8:00pm JakeGould:

“Moonshine: The Hee Haw Musical” right here… www.broadway.com...
Avatar 8:00pm JakeGould:

Kudos for the whole show, Becky!
