12/31/2011 Good 'N Country


Since today's show fell on New Year's Eve, we did an all star salute to the great hillbilly poet Hank Williams. This marked the 59th anniversary of his passing (he died either on December 31st, 1952 or January 1st 1953-depending on which account you read). While today's lame and boring cookie cutter country stations have all but forgotten ol' Hank, we will always have room for Hank Williams on Good and Country-still the twin cities ONLY choice for REAL country music! Accept no imitations.
