Good’n‘Country listeners blew out all the stops during today’s pledge show, exceeding the program’s previous single-broadcast Pledge Drive record with 21 pledges called in and over $1,300 raised for KFAI. Guest hosts Jean Silverberg, Ron Thums and Jackson Buck were thrilled by a surprise visit by host Ken Hippler, who stopped by the studio to thank Good’n‘Country and Fresh Air supporters and assure us all that he would be back in the saddle next week, April 13. Remember that the 2013 Pledge Drive continues through next Friday and listeners can continue to contribute at www.kfai.org. Make sure you indicate your pledge is for Good’n‘Country when you do!
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.
