My honky tonk heart. How poetic. Hello all.

Speedy Bryant too?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:04pm Wonky Tonk Radio Niall:

What ho, Tupelo! Nice to be up late enough to catch the show as it airs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm Becky:

Howdy friends! Love your name, Niall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm van chinski:

Wow, this song
  8:07pm dano59:

A murder ballad that always sounds a LOT older than 65 (1957).
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:07pm ultradamno:

Wow, a Honk It Down show, a Honk-o-Phonic Girl show and a Dave The Radio Girl show all on the horizon....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Becky:

Wait, ultradamno, how did you know??
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm ultradamno:

Reading is fundamental!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Lizchancey:

Wowowow Orville Peck definitely borrowed some voice from Haydon!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Wonky Tonk Radio Niall:

I wonder if Joe Meek was a fan of this Hayden Thompson guy. I love the florid melodies of songs like this or "Johnny Remember Me."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:12pm Little Danny:

hello becky, hello flying birds
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Pauly from Clifton:

Hey Becky, gang!
Avatar 🎸 8:14pm Destroit:

Ultradamno has superpowers. He is also always first on message board.
  8:17pm dano59:

There is a heap of Country Fuzz to be had on Beware of the Blog. Including that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Becky:

hi y'all, sorry for the hiccups, a lot going on this eve!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Becky:

But isn't this Merle Travis great!?
Avatar 🎸 8:21pm Destroit:

Yes it was!
  8:21pm dano59:

It is! (I try to follow the midtempo guideline re: discerning Popcorn, i could be wrong)
  8:21pm Theo:

I’m crying and dancing at the same time…
  8:24pm dano59:

Oh man, the Corn Sisters could do this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm listener 126464:

Hi Becky, everyone.
Avatar 🎸 8:24pm Destroit:

Bring on Twitty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Little Danny:

conway had been listening to some george jones :)
  8:28pm dano59:

Sings about bottles or glasses tend to be great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Little Danny:

@dano: totally agree!
  8:33pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

Oh man I forgot about Mickey Gilley.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:34pm ultradamno:

Before Craigslist and the general assumption that personal ads were an invitation to be murdered
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:35pm The Count of Al Dente:

Y'all!! This music keeps me bouncing my knee while I sit through this tornado watch warning.
  8:35pm dano59:

I remember reading an article at the height of the Urban Cowboy craze about a visit to Gilley's in Houston, that said the whole place looked like it cost $1.98, tops.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm The Count of Al Dente:

Ever hear Wagoner's, Rubber Room?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm Becky:

Ha, Rubber Room is a tour de force of early echo effect technology
  8:36pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

Right, Urban Cowboy…
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, Becky and bronco-busters!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:37pm Whippoorwill:

Howdy Tonkies!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Don't forget Jimmy Swaggart, the third in the wildman country-cousin triumvirate!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:39pm ultradamno:

Was line dancing part of that or did it come later...I kind of remember it as rising up with Achy Breaky Heart
  8:39pm dano59:

This brings me back to the fishing bars where i grew up. One in particular had a great jukebox.
  8:41pm dano59:

(re: Vern Stovall)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:41pm ultradamno:

I remember Ann Magnusson going on about Swaggart's performing skill in an interview once. He was a literal bible thumper, I recall that. He would really wave it around.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm Becky:

Shoutout to Jason D Williams.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Mr. Fine Wine:

Jason D.!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm Wonky Tonk Radio Niall:

Manny from "Black Books!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm Becky:

Skinny Dennis!
Avatar 8:51pm tak:

he has a few funny complaints about that song. Not sure if it was on QI or one of his live specials
  8:51pm dano59:

Bill Bailey also does an uproarious Billy Bragg parody
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Becky:

I love Bill Bailey. And thought he did brilliantly on Strictly Come Dancing. Have never paid attention to that kind of show until he was on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:54pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Is that the same "Won't you come home, Bill Bailey? Won't you come home?" Bill Bailey?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:56pm ultradamno:

Well, that song goes back to 1902, so...
  8:59pm yippie:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm Ken From Hyde Park:
