Ultimate Twang

  • Thursday 4-7pm
Genre: 
Country

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.

Holly Dunn 45 rpm

I know you might be a bit surprised to see a classic country music show like Ultimate Twang paying tribute to Leon Russell, but Leon was one of those great musicians who succeeded in many genres, including country. Six of his singles (most under the name Hank Wilson) charted on the country side, including his 1979 #1 duet with Willie Nelson, covering Elvis' classic "Heartbreak Hotel". On today's show, you'll hear that song, along with a couple of those Hank Wilson tracks.
On the other hand, paying tribute to Holly Dunn is a no-brainer. She scored 9 top ten hits during the late 80's and early 90's, including two #1's. You'll hear some of her great hits on today's show, as well.
You'll also hear several requests, along with the UT Time Machine, Vintage Farm Report, and so much more. 3 hours of the best classic country music, the sounds that made country great, beginning at 4p ET, today.
