Elwood: What kind of music do you usually have here?
Claire: Oh, we got both kinds. We got country *and* western.

Merle Haggard - Holding Things Together.

Mondatory Merle needs a little hair product, but that shirt is pretty cool.


Patsy Cline wearing the banned pantsuit in a photograph taken for an Opry sponsor

❞Patsy Cline was outspoken, brash and bawdy, but Opry management preferred that female cast members present themselves as demure and ladylike – preferably in full, square dance-style dresses. When Patsy Cline appeared in a lavender pantsuit and cowgirl hat, she was asked not to wear the outfit on the show again.

BKOM Radio Show Update/Up-To-Date

I took the time yesterday to update the radio show archives and playlists. What does this mean, you ask? 

1) All the shows are uploaded and archived on the BKOM page of BBOX Radio. 55 shows to date. 

2) As I run the show off Spotify, you can listen to shows without me talkin’ minus whatever is from my collection. Those are in my public playlists

3) There’s one big honkin’ playlist that includes all the songs I’ve played to date. Nearly 1800 songs, 88 hours, no dupes (maybe)…yada yada.

Presidential Proclamation, 1974

It is a music which can be happy or sad, fast or slow, but it is always about life. The words of country music songs talk about life the way it is really lived.
