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.

Charlie Rich Behind Closed Doors LP

Here are five reasons you should be listening to today's Ultimate Twang...

1. Bro-country free! No Luke, Kane, FGL, or Sam on this show.

2. Three hours of wall-to-wall music.

3. Perhaps the most interesting lineup of music we've ever had on this program. It
includes pioneers such as The Carter Family and Merle Travis; country crossover
sounds from the Charlie Daniels Band and Randy Vanwarmer; plus, greats from
all the past eras: Hank Snow, Tex Ritter, Tanya Tucker, Mark Chesnutt, Janie
Fricke, John Michael Montgomery, Mel Tillis, Anne Murray, and John Anderson,
among others.

4. It's educational!

5. It might make you a part of the "in-crowd".

Join me, starting at 4p ET, this afternoon!
