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.

Homer and Jethro

Put it in gear and crank up the volume, as we get set for our weekly three hours of the greatest classic country music you'll find on radio or internet. This week, we'll get you ready for the holiday weekend, remembering those who fought and died for us, courtesy of tunes from Trace Adkins, Merle Haggard, and Elton Britt. We'll also get ready to go racing, as well, with a few motoring sounds, too. We'll drop the green flag at 4p ET, today, so join us.

As we enter the month of May, we are now firmly into the Spring season. Flowers in bloom, gardens growing, warmer temps, it's one of the months that truly makes memories. For me, being from Indiana, many of my memories revolve around the springtime planting ritual that anyone who's farmed or lived on a farm, knows all about. Plus, there is of course, the dominant part of any May in Indiana, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Listening to the likes of Sid Collins, Paul Page, Lou Palmer, Bob Jenkins, and others, each Memorial Day weekend, along with all of the festivities throughout the month are things deeply etched in my mind. And while we're on the month of May and memories and Indiana, perhaps the greatest for any of us Hoosier sports fans; happened 20 years ago, today. Reggie Miller, 8 points, 9 seconds, crying Knicks fans. Enough said.
Join me, today, for your May Memories, with Ultimate Twang, beginning at 4p ET, right here on Asheville Free Media.
