You gonna play Gary Numan first, or last?

This is the first Hank Snow song I ever heard.

you must be on the same wavelength as bob dylan Theme Time Radio Girl
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Gaylord Fields:

@Little Danny: What a coincidence! This is the most recent Hank Snow song I've heard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Uncle Michael:

When I was 19 I used to frequent a strip joint that played "One Six Pack To Go" at closing time. I wish I was too proud to share that with you all.
Avatar 8:07pm Little Danny:

Astrology is real but you know that already Gaylord.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:09pm Gaylord Fields:

Isn't that the name of the Louvin Brothers' less popular follow-up to Satan Is Real?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Uncle Michael:

I mixed up my Hanks, didn't I?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm ultradamno:

I thought it was Hot Stuff The Little Devil Is Real
Avatar 8:11pm Little Danny:

You know that album cover would be off the chain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Handy Haversack:

Matt, the guys who ran sound at Teddy's in Wburg when Kate worked there dedicated "Cars" to her and "better aim next time" when she ran over me a little with the car in ... 2002? 2001?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Gaylord Fields:

@LD: I picture it as Ira and Charlie standing next to a cardboard cutout of Walter Mercado.
  8:13pm The Butterman:

Who loves Ferlin? Becky loves Ferlin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Becky:

Becky loves Ferlin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm ultradamno:

Wings could not possibly achieve that speed.
Avatar 8:14pm Little Danny:

I have a feeling Walter Mercado would be down for any album cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Gaylord Fields:

Ferlin Husky vs. Neal Hefti: who ya got?
Avatar 8:14pm Little Danny:

Ah, nuts, passed away last year. R.I.P. Walter Mercado.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm Gaylord Fields:

@LD: There's a really good documentary on Netflix about Walter Mercado.
Avatar 8:15pm Little Danny:

That Ferlin Husky was fantastic.
Avatar 8:17pm Little Danny:

I guess any young country singer woulda been doing their best Hank in the mid-'50s.
  8:17pm actual person:

Ole Ferlin knew what a steel geetar was for
Avatar 8:18pm Little Danny:

I'm just now looking into that Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Handy Haversack: Teddy's claim to fame for me (besides having a supercool vibe) was its pouring of Pappy Van Winkle at very reasonable prices.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Becky:

The tiger in question sounds very...small
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm ultradamno:

They used to have little tiger tails for your gascap as a promotion twitter.com...

Avatar 8:22pm mb:

aw yea, driving songs. Will put this on for the Sunday cruise. Getting a new/old tape deck installed that was in my 1st car!
  8:22pm actual person:

Becky, you would think that a cat roar from a gas tank would sound a little more frightening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Becky:

As an attorney for an engineering firm, this song really makes me nervous.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Matt Fiveash:

"Astrology is Real: Ira & Charlie Louvin sing the songs of Harvey Sid Fisher"

Still making a bridge out of silver must be for a high rent neighborhood.
  8:24pm The Butterman:

Can you put a tiger tail on a kayak, Handy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Becky:

My firm does have a solid reputation for making wobbly bridges un-wobbly so this doesn't happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

* off to search for a song about the Tacoma Narrows Bridge *
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm listener 126464:

Happy Motoring!
Avatar 8:28pm Little Danny:

That Tacoma Narrows footage really made an impression on me as kid. That and driving past the collapsed part of the Sunshine Skyway bridge.
  8:28pm actual person:

DJ Becky did you pick out your eyeglass fashion-wear yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Becky:

I've got pretty much some army-issues. I haven't gone real glasses shopping.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt F: I'd buy that for the cover alone. Wouldn't be the first LP.
  8:30pm yipster times:

versace shades are pretty good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Did they have a Tacoma Narrows-themed feature at Action Park?
Avatar 8:31pm Dave the Spazz:

How much do I love Ernest Tubb? Let me count the ways...

this jeopardy tune is messing with my brain! haha.
  8:35pm Andres:

Trista - I heard it also!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Jason from Houston:

OH DANG
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Handy Haversack:

Mr. Fine Wine: Indeed! And when one had an inside connection, the prices were reasonable indeed. Kate waited tables there 2000-2008, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Handy Haversack:

@The Butterman: Depends on whether it's still got the tiger attached!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Becky:

I don't know if Matt Warwick is watching the chat, but he made a truly wonderful country Jeopardy graphic while we were testing sound earlier.
  8:38pm Andres:

I tuned in tardy. Did any info emerge from
last week's mystery?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Becky:

NADA! Though I'm tardy in sending an investigative email.
  8:40pm Andres:

Rats! Get Encyclopedia Brown on the job!
  8:40pm actual person:

Had to google Long Black Limo, Merle Haggard's brutal side of songwriting

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:41pm Jason from Houston:

Hahaha... I don't have an answer for that. I do prefer the Bare version.
  8:41pm actual person:

Got a belly laugh outa that DJ Matt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm ultradamno:

Probably more appropriate for the previous hour, but I think my favorite car song is Screamin' Jay's $10,000 Lincoln Continental
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Handy Haversack:

"What is 'In your face, Space Coyote'?"!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm ultradamno:

It's what you say when you get one over on your spirit animal frinkiac.com...

Tex Rubinowitz? How about Jewish Cowboys for $200 please?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Of course the Commander Cody version of this was a smash hit in Detroit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Becky:

This Red Simpson album is all narc records.
  8:56pm Curtiss C Flush:

He had rulebreakers to chastise. That's no easy task.

Thanks, Becky.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Jason from Houston:

So fine! Thank you!
Avatar 9:00pm slugluv1313:

@ Uncle Michael -- sounds like a possibly amazing OR depressing strip joint :)
there was a joint in Queens (Nickel's, i think? Woodside?) -- for some reason i am remembering "Rock Me Amadeus" as the closing tune one night, a co-worker had worked a double shift -- yikes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Handy Haversack:

Ken, you can maybe guess how many times a day I say to myself, "I didn't say *they wouldn't," I said *you shouldn't*!"!
Avatar 9:00pm slugluv1313:

WONDERFUL show, Becky -- thanks so much!!!
