We paid tribute to the late great George Jones by prominently including many of his recordings throughout today's show. It would actually be possible to play nothing but George Jones every show the rest of the year, and still not cover his recorded catalog. He truly defined country music for the last 50+ years, and will be sorely missed. However, be assured that George Jones has been and will always be a mainstay on Good and Country.
Karl digs into the KFAI record library and does a show using only the vinyl LP’s and 45’s in the library. Lots of great old Zydeco, Cajun and Swamp Pop. Lots of great LP record jackets that need to be displayed.

In the late 19th century, insane asylums were built across the country in response to a national outcry over the treatment of the mentally ill. More than 75 asylums were designed using Dr. Thomas Kirkbride’s Moral Treatment Plan, which claimed that mental ailments could be alleviated with beautiful architecture and serene landscaping. The former State Hospital in Fergus Falls is one of the few remaining intact Kirbride hospitals in the country. Re-named the Regional Treatment Center in 1985, the building is destined for the wrecking ball if a developer is not soon found. KFAI producer Susan Gray spoke with preservation supporters to learn about the building’s historical significance to Fergus Falls, and the treatment of people with mental illness.
