Happy 70th birthday yesterday, Dolly Parton. Retaining her membership in the "Not Dead" club.
Avatar 8:06pm Becky:

@JakeGould Very few, I would say. Maybe some in private homes. Rockabilly records, yes.
Avatar 8:07pm Becky:

@Ken A very warm happy birthday to the wonderful, heavily tattooed Dolly.
Avatar 8:08pm Marcel M:

There are good record shops in Barcelona as I'm sure you know (not for country), but its so tough there cuz its soooo expensive to buy records...
Avatar 8:09pm Becky:

@Marcel Indeed - I'll vouch for Discos Juando. But not for country.
Avatar 8:11pm Becky:

Hearing Hank Snow sing "ballin' the jack" brings me great amusement and joy.
  8:12pm Listener Robert:

This is nearly incredible -- rhumba, boogie, c&w style...what next?
Avatar 8:13pm Juke Joint Jonny:

Honky Tonk Girl you're killing it this eve.
Avatar 8:13pm Becky:

@JJJ Much obliged.
  8:14pm Listener Robert:

Seriously, where else could I have learned that such a thing as The Rhumba Boogie existed, even if it was by a prominent performer?
Avatar 8:15pm Becky:

I think Hank rhumba'd so much his toupee fell on the record.
Avatar 8:16pm JakeGould:

Do I like it? Yes, I do. What’s the damage?
  8:20pm Julie:

this is Gypsy Davey!

  8:24pm Listener Robert:

The again, there's so much music I don't know. One July 4 I got out the old records for company, only to have them recognize the tune on one single in Croatian as "Buffalo Gals". I only knew that version, & I don't know Croatian (nor did they), but I mean I didn't recognize it as a popular tune. Made me wonder whether "Buffalo Gals" was translated into English from Croatian, but apparently not.

...Lead Belly's B-Day...some Blues/Folk/Country crossover here...
Avatar 8:30pm JakeGould:

I mean to say, “had.” Oh grammar!
  8:32pm Listener Robert:

Leave your ancestors out of this, Jake.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I remember singing the worried song in grade school music class.

My favorite show since Laura had the Radio Thrift Shop. Please don't stop.
Avatar 8:53pm Becky:

Aw, thanks everybody.
  8:53pm Both Kinds of Music:

Think that's Roger Miller on backing vocals?
  8:53pm Loretta fan:

I always love your show Becky.

Nice cover of Hungry Eyes.

  8:57pm Both Kinds of Music:

Right! That's a big duh on my part
