timmuky's current selection is:
Lonesome 77203
by Hawkshaw Hawkins
Finally tuned in to the PBS "Country Music" series, which imo, and predictably, doesn't scratch much beneath the surface (lot of ground to cover--I get it), but, also predictably, gathers myriad amazing video clips and photos, and features some great interviews from unexpected sources.

Including Jean Shepard, who I have adored for years, as much for her firecracker personality as for her fine catalog of songs. It was incredibly moving to hear her side of the story of the west Tennessee small plane crash that took the lives of Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, and Shepard's husband Hawkshaw, who had a great voice and looked better in a cowboy hat than anyone I can think of.

This was his first and of course only number one hit. Add the Hawkins name to the list of posthumous number ones, along with Buddy, Otis, Jim Reeves, Jimi, John Lennon, 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G.

Tim Ungs
Countrypolitan, ex-cosmopolitan (NYC, London, Sydney, Minneapolis). Currently obsessing over pop jazz vocalists like June Christy, Billie Holiday, Ella, Hoagie, Satch, Anita O'Day and kinda going through a major Peggy Lee phase. Also stan for current pop divas like Charli, Rosalia, Kesha, and Sky; and will never lose my love for country roots Charlie Rich, Merle, Milton Brown!!
Nothing currently playing...
