Yankee candles, Yankee clippers, Yankee pot roast ... This should be good!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for the shout-out, Becky! Show us that the Taylor Ham/Pork Roll divide is the true Mason-Dixon Line!
Avatar 8:07pm JakeGhould:

Yankee candles are disgusting. This Union music is fine, tho.
Avatar 8:08pm dale:

LOVE this dude's stab at marty robbins!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm ultradamno:

This (TexJim) sounds awfully western for an eastern
Avatar 8:11pm Becky:

Okay, @ultradamno, he is originally from Texas, BUT, the record was a promo for Wild West City in Netcong, NJ, which figures prominently in this whole calculation.
  8:13pm Davevad:

That last one was Wabash Cannonball, no?
Avatar 8:13pm JakeGhould:

#1 in Lebanon, PA!
Avatar 8:13pm Becky:

@Davevad - Pretty much.

@Becky: Thanks for the True Taylor spin! Glad you finally got to play it!:)
  8:24pm adrian in mpls:

You could do an all-Canuck show at some point! Hank Snow is Canadian, right?
Avatar 8:24pm slugluv1313:

awwwww man LOVING this "Poor Little Fool"
Avatar 8:25pm Becky:

Adrian, that's an excellent idea, and yes, he is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm ultradamno:

Almost thought that was the Everlys for a second, which is pretty high praise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gaylord Fields:

@adrian in mpls: In other words, a Hank Snow song, followed by 57 minutes of Stompin' Tom!
  8:30pm bryguy:

Oh wow, Wild West City was always my go to birthday destination as a kid.
Avatar 8:31pm Becky:

Gaylord, you know I love me some Sudbury Saturday Night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm Gaylord Fields:

Becky, I expected nothing less.
Avatar 8:39pm JakeGhould:

Is Bingo a thing down South or out West?
Avatar 8:44pm On the Yazoo:

I thought Bingo was a thing everywhere.
Avatar 8:45pm Becky:

It's a thing in England!
Avatar 8:45pm Becky:

And New Zealand!
Avatar 8:46pm Snortley:

How about the original Jewish cowboy? Ramblin' Jack Elliot, from Brooklyn, NY - Midwood no less.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm ultradamno:

A friend of mine here in Indiana called Bingo in high school. The players kept accusing her of hexing them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm ultradamno:

Well, in high school at the time, I think she called it at a lodge.
  8:51pm adrian in mpls:

@gaylord - I’m not familiar with the oeuvre of Stompin Tom - what am I missing out on?
Avatar 8:51pm JakeGhould:

Sorry for my inadvertent Bingo Bigotry.

@Snortley: Funny you mention that. When I Googled for the bingo, I came across this “Bingo Wholesale” a 100% kosher/Orthodox wholesale store in Borough Park! twitter.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Gaylord Fields:

@adrian in mpls: Some pretty good tunes performed well by someone who sang exclusively about Canadian themes. Stompin' Tom Connors was chauvinistic in the good way.
Avatar 8:53pm slugluv1313:

Last Roundup? Amy Allison & The Maudlins? Kristi Rose & The Midnight Walkers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm ultradamno:

Did she say 'dog of the town'?...that's a cry for a pep talk.
Avatar 8:55pm Becky:

@adrian in mpls: For example, Stompin' Tom wrote and recorded the best song about hockey, ever.
  8:56pm rigadoon:

Thumbs up from Australia for the Quinto sisters...if only I had heard them before my last failed wedding :)
  8:56pm adrian in mpls:

The theme to”Hockey Night in Canada?” ;)
  8:59pm adrian in mpls:

I’ll check him out - I can get down with some Canadian pride
Avatar 9:00pm JakeGhould:

Oh… BOO!
Avatar 9:00pm slugluv1313:

gosh, according to this, The Quinto Sisters were the first to record "Holly Jolly Christmas"!
