Hi Becky, hopheads!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Barney Grubbs:

Nice accordion in Roy Hogsed’s band
  8:08pm BH:

extra points for the singer who sang a version of "Cocaine Blues" who was the least likely to have used cocaine
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Becky:

It's so funny that this song is pretty much a polka.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm PigeonsAndRust:

Two great seldom-heard versions of one of the all-time best tunes.THANKS for this!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:09pm PigeonsAndRust:

Too bad Frankie Yankovic didn't cut a version
  8:10pm BH:

Hank Thompson's annunciation is a little to get used to after being so used to the best known version.

Also, the Webb Pierce/Willie Nelson duet of "In the Jailhouse Now" actually kinda worked
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Becky:

I bet you Frankie did some blow in his day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Scott Williams:

requests Johnny Paycheck's Ballad of Frisco Bay, on account of I watched Jaws recently
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:14pm PigeonsAndRust:

Frankie did own a bar, and his father was a bootlegger, so..yeah!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Listener Scott:

That Rusty Draper number has me thinking there should probably be a song about Miranda rights.
  8:15pm johnk77:

great show
requesting hoyt axton
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:16pm PigeonsAndRust:

Or maybe the "Probable Cause Polka"
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:17pm Handy Haversack:

Hey, Becky! Hey, Tonkies.

The music to prison pipeline, eh? Sounding good.
  8:18pm The Butterman:

Hey Becky, Hey y’all. First time in a few weeks I’m gittin to listen live. Lovin it, of course!

Hey Becky! San Francisco and other areas out on the West Coast are just orange skies today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Becky:

Yes, was talking to a colleague in SF on Zoom and he took me out on the balcony for a second -- totally apocalyptic
Avatar 8:25pm y_ddraig_las:

Hei, [Can I say?] "y'all", or is that cultural appropriation? Asking for a friend
  8:26pm JakeGould:

Friend’s small kid in S.F. saw the orange sky, was told it was about fires and the kid just said, “At least I don’t have fire ants in my penis!” Oh those youth of today!!!

Glasgow County Jail flows better than "Barren County Jail"? (Glasgow, KY is in Barren County)

Took me years to use y'all and I am from Fort Worth...

The official most C&W episode of The Twilight Zone (even more than Jess-belle or The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank)? twilightzone.fandom.com...

Jason from Houston is from Fort Worth?! My world is reeling!

Is this America's Greatest Song, or what?

Currently from Houston. Here since 2008. I had been back and forth messing around with love and friends and art since 1997 or so.
Avatar 8:43pm y_ddraig_las:

I was wondering when this would turn up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm Scott Williams:

@ultradamno, that's probably my fave TZ episode! So spooky, and such a gorgeous song. tho maybe more "folk boom" than C&W
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:45pm ultradamno:

Well, he does admit, once he's in deep "that's not even what I do, man, I play rockabilly, like this.."

As a Kansas guy I have to have Lee Hazlewood's "Hutchison Jail" as my favorite jail song...but I don't. My favorite is Tom T Hall's "A Week In A County Jail".
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Handy Haversack:

Kate and I are cooking and eating over so have not been able to get to the comments, but: *fierce* show, Becky. Thank you!

Thanks, Skeletons.

Be well, all. No more jails. Tear them down.
