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.

Planting Corn

If you're like me, chances are that you heard many of the songs on Ultimate Twang, as a youngster, thanks to your parents, grandparents, or other family members and friends. Perhaps it was Saturday morning yard work or gardening with a transistor radio, or in the car driving to or around town. In my case, it was often on a radio mounted on the fender of an Allis-Chalmers tractor, in the field or around the hog lots. Wherever you first heard them, they tend to bring back memories, for sure. And each week for 3 hours, that's what you get with our Ultimate Twang show. Join me at 4p ET, today for the memories and the great music that invokes them. We're at 103.3 here in Asheville, and right here on this website, worldwide! So, if you're driving around Asheville, crank up the radio and enjoy! Or if you're doing yard work in California, or planting a field in Nebraska, crank up your mobile device and enjoy!
