Hello, Becky! Hello, all the countries!

Yeesh, it seems like we have had a run of Wednesday interferences, but here we are -- and glad for it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:01pm ultradamno:

Becky! Tonkies!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm Becky:

Hi everyone!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:03pm Pauly from Clifton:

Howdy, Becky, Tonkers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm mariano:

Hey Becky, all. Looking forward to the thrilling conclusion of the alphabetic saga.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:05pm Ken From Hyde Park:

For next week, you can consult On Beyond Zebra! to see what letters follow.
  8:05pm The Butterman:

Hey Becky, congrats on coming up with and completing a great radio concept. Persistence!
Avatar 8:06pm Hubig Pie:

Meet John Doe has a nice cover of Hank Cochran's "It's Only Love"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm PigeonsAndRust:

Even the Wikipedia list of country singers omits the letter X. en.m.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Handy Haversack:

Mariano: spoiler alert: the zygomorph did it.
Avatar 8:07pm Hubig Pie:

So that's half an X
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Becky:

@Pigeons I'm glad it's not just me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm mariano:

Lol. Here I was thinking it'd be ZZ Top.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm mariano:

[They are in the dictionary, right?]
  8:12pm P-90:

Howdy Becky, and all the Beckaroos on the Radio Range...
Avatar 8:13pm RabidRabbit:

"This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it." - Golden opportunity for someone to etch their name into history by becoming a notable country music singer whose name starts with X :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Ken From Hyde Park:

I wonder if our dear X.Ray Burns recorded any songs that would qualify.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm ultradamno:

There used to be more of a bias against we four eyes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

Orbison and Holly represent!
  8:23pm Chooi Goi:

Hello DJ Honky Tonk Radio Girl with Becky, I always though wingtip eyeglasses go well with cowboy boots. Too much? Seriously, my eyesight is going and reading glasses aren't enough now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Handy Haversack:

Yeah, was hoping they'd qualify, ultradamno!

Maybe glasses would have helped Jimmy Wert win at bingo is all I'm saying ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm mariano:

Unless someone can dig up a Xavier Cugat country album (hey, Ray Charles did one), I've found a candidate, though he's still an up-and-comer: Xavier Joseph www.xavierjoseph.com
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Grandpa Jones wore glasses. Were they actually prescription lenses or just part of the costume?
  8:25pm P-90:

Hmm.. what could be left after Rudy Wesley...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Becky:

Ah, but Mariano, I file under last name!
  8:26pm Chooi Goi:

@Ken, I get a radio program on NPR from Arkansas. One of the presenters is Grandpa Jones' son.
  8:27pm P-90:

West! Of course...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28pm Handy Haversack:

XXX is a traditional western whiskey strength, if that helps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Stringbean also wore glasses later on. Hee Haw provides a wealth of information.
@Chooi Goi - Wow, that's neat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm ultradamno:

She's got the jugs d3nvbf5pqk2vjh.cloudfront.net...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm mariano:

Oh phooey, Becky! Ok, now I have a new mission ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm ultradamno:

Is three hearts a proof designation too?

I'm pretty sure that image is a hate crime to boot, fair warning.
  8:32pm Chooi Goi:

Ozark Highlands is the name of the show @Ken. It's actually good if you like that kinda' screechin' fiddles and nasal whinin'. Seriously, it is entertaining and tolerable.
  8:35pm P-90:

Slim! Of course... always good news unless you’re a Martian.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm PigeonsAndRust:

I just put the question to my friend Darwin Lee Hill and he pointed out that Vernon Dalhart recorded on Grey Gull under the name "Mr. X". I know I have a couple, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Great, Chooi Goi, I can look into that.
If any hillfolk signed their recording contracts with an "X," that probably doesn't count.
Avatar 8:39pm Hubig Pie:

I got 50 cents ridin' that the next song be Bob Wills
  8:40pm Nick “The Greek Cowboy” Xanthopoulos:

I have good song on my country CD . Come to diner and ask for me or Linda . I make country disco fries for you !
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm PigeonsAndRust:

Or maybe Tex Williams
  8:44pm The Butterman:

Wow, “W” has all the big hitters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Handy Haversack:

Mr. P!

OK, we're both already crying.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm mariano:

Awww, Handy, what a sweetheart!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Becky:

It wouldn't be Honky Tonk Radio Girl if the heartfelt dedication didn't skip. Sorry guys! Love you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm ultradamno:

Lucy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm Handy Haversack:

Becky! You are the best-best-b-best-bb-best!
Avatar 8:44pm Mr. Fine Wine:

How did you manage to get more wear on your Lucinda record than on any of your rare 45s??
  8:45pm Chooi Goi:

I'm only hear for the scratches and skips.
Avatar 8:45pm Mr. Fine Wine:

We know how much Lucinda likes her Spanish reds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Becky:

It was the needle, jeez. Also one of the small hole 45s that can be a little temperamental.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm ultradamno:

I resisted the urge to post that a few more times in honor of the skip. Proud of myself
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm Handy Haversack:

Dang, I hope Pumpy is hearing this. Thanks, friend. There is nothing -- NOTHING -- like the friendship of wonderful people, not during this time of misery, not ever. We are so grateful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm PigeonsAndRust:

WFMU: where the radio station is a community and each show is a neighborhood.
  8:47pm Chooi Goi:

And every listener is suspect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Handy Haversack:

Thank you, Becky.

Thank you, Mr. Pumpy.

Thank you, WFMU.

Thank every last goddamn one of you.

Holy crap. Can't even eat my damn pasta.
  8:50pm The Butterman:

Ooooooo I only know Kitty Wells’ version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Becky:

You guys are the best, Handy. <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm loveless:

I'm sorry to see the list ending. It was so much fun. Thanks, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm Handy Haversack:

Amazing. May the future see all of us closing a hotel bar with Lucinda Williams and you.

Thanks, Becky. Thanks, Skeleton. Be well, all.

WFMU 5EVA.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm mariano:

It's a well-deserved moment of happiness, Handy & Kate. Thanks Becky and crew, bye everyone!
  8:58pm Matt Fiveash:

When I played the Everlys version of this tonight it had nothing to do with anticipating the “z” section. Swear to god!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm PigeonsAndRust:

A show that melted even my cold heart. Thanks so much, Becky!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Becky:

I lied about getting to Rex Zario!!
  8:59pm Chooi Goi:

Your BAD DJ Becky....Now I REALLY like you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Go, Rex Z.! Thank you, Becky and you absolutely zonkers listeners!
  9:00pm Nick “The Greek Cowboy” Xanthopoulos:

That is good !
  9:01pm P-90:

Thank you kindly, Ma’am!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm ultradamno:

7 to the 8?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm PigeonsAndRust:

Ooooo, I'm excited about next week!
