This weekend is Independence Day, the day we celebrate the birth of our great nation. We do so with fireworks, picnics, parades, and such. But never forget the sacrifices made that has created the world's greatest nation. The sacrifices made by the founding fathers, as well as the soldiers in every war, and everyone else who has done their part for freedom. We'll celebrate that freedom on this week's Ultimate Twang, as we mix in some great Patriotic tunes from some of the all time greats like Charlie Daniels, Johnny Horton, Donna Fargo, and more. In addition, the UT Time Machine is going back to this week in 1976 to see what was happening as American celebrated it's 200th Birthday. Lots of great classic country music for 3 hours, beginning at 4p ET, Thursday afternoon, and found ONLY on AshevilleFM. Here in Asheville, you can listen at 103.3 FM, and worldwide, you can listen right here on our website, or via the TuneIn app on most smart devices, or the AshevilleFM app for Android devices, that's free at the Google Play Store. America, we say God bless you and Happy Birthday!
- Thursday 4-7pm
It's a trip back in time to those days in your daddy's pickup truck, with the George Jones, and Waylon Jennings 8-tracks playing; or to the times in your grandmother's kitchen, drinking an RC, eating too many Smarties, Mary Janes, or Tootsie Rolls, with Eddy Arnold or Kitty Wells in the background. Perhaps it's the Hank Jr. or Alabama song that's part of the soundtrack for that special vacation, first baseball game, first car, or first love. Whether the year was 1993, 1973, or 1953; the memories return with Ultimate Twang. The reminiscent sounds of days past from the voices and pickers you loved, along with a few you might have forgotten about. Simply sit back and enjoy, as the gentle breezes of yesterday carry those long-lost sounds and events back to the forefront of your memories.
