Diego!! Great to see you here.

I was sad when I heard Mel passed. He was one of my mom's faves back in the day, along with Chet, Charley Pride, Eddy Arnold, and Mario Lanza. :-(
  Wed. 11/22/17 8:10pm Diego Britt:

I count on you for the 'deep' tracks...

Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:15pm david_:

Columbia production was so good in this period, too.
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:17pm Richard S:

Any possibility of a live recording coming up? I'm told that Tillis was amazing in person.

Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:24pm Becky:

@Richard - I'll try!
  Wed. 11/22/17 8:28pm Tennessee Jeb:

Awesome. This has to be one of my all time favorites you’ve played Becky, didn’t know it was Mel’s!
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:30pm Richie:

Whew! First time I've been able to listen to a "Live" broadcast in a bazillion years! Hi all!

All winners so far (how could they not be?), I especially loved "I Ain't Never"
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:32pm Richard S:

Thanks, Becky! No problem if you can't find one..... (we have YouTube)
  Wed. 11/22/17 8:36pm Diego Britt:

I'm going to go on record saying I didn't remember that Mel wrote 'Strange'... Makes sense though.
Avatar    Wed. 11/22/17 8:38pm ultradamno:

I didn't either. Beautiful, of course.
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:38pm Richard S:

Great show, Becky! I have a stutter but it doesn't effect my singing either. Too bad I don't have a good voice...
  Wed. 11/22/17 8:50pm Diego Britt:

Thanks for a great show!
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:51pm Richard S:

I have to remember to tune in more often. Thank goodness for the Archives!

Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:57pm Becky:

@ATF - Amen.
Avatar Wed. 11/22/17 8:58pm Richard S:

Last time I did that, ATF, I left the table with twice as much as I had when I sat down. Should I apologize?
  Wed. 11/22/17 9:00pm Diego Britt:

RIP Mel!
  Wed. 11/22/17 9:00pm Tennessee Jeb:
