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.
Ray Booneville called in from Austin, Tx. for a chat. Tea Simpson of L’Assassins came in with their new release. Played a few tracks by them. Had a musical tribute to Richie Havens, who passed away this week. Played some songs by Todd Snider and gave away tix to his concert with Jason Isbell. Went back to 1973 for a cool song by Canadian slide singer writer Ellen McIlwane. A little of this, a little of that. Typical Freewheelin’. If you want to see the entire playlist, just click “Episode Details” and you can check it out. You’ll be able to listen to the archive of the show from there.
