Ultimate Twang

  • 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.

John Denver "Sunshine On My Shoulders"

It's a bit different show, this week, as the entire three hours of Ultimate Twang is made up of hits from past Octobers. Yep, all of the songs, today, either debuted, peaked, or were charting during the month of October. You'll be retrieving those memories of going to the orchard or pumpkin farm; the smell of corn freshly harvested, football games past, the weather cooling. The show is going to be stellar! Make sure you join me at 4p ET, today!

45 rpm records

This week on The World Famous Ultimate Twang, you'll hear three hours' worth of lost or almost lost country classics and gems. Great sounds that you haven't likely heard in quite a while from the likes of Glen Campbell, Charley Pride, Gene Watson, Rosanne Cash, Ricky Van Shelton, Marie Osmond, and many more. You'll hear insirational faves from Waylon, Red Foley, and The Brown's Ferry Four, plus classic LP tracks from Merle Haggard, Jim Reeves, and Don Williams. In addition, having spent a little time thrift shopping, I've got a couple of 45's that'll get their first-ever play on the show from Red Sovine and Hugh X. Lewis. That thrift shopping, by the way, yielded quite a few 45's and 78's; I'll have more to play on future shows. It kicks off at 4p ET, so make sure you join me, right here at the Asheville Free Media website for some great, classic country sounds!
