CLA Radio 11/14/14: Old School Country (Why Contemporary Country Sucks)

CLAR116-OldSchoolCountry-Banner

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 11/14/14, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will concern itself with real country, as opposed to the crap I saw on this week’s CMA Awards show (although Brad and Carrie were cute, and very entertaining). Seriously, they play “Gentle On My Mind” and don’t mention John Hartford??

As Larry Cordle put it:

For the steel guitars no longer cry
And the fiddles barely play
But drums and rock ‘n’ roll guitars
Are mixed up in your face

Also, get off my lawn.

Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat!

Or, if you like, you can listen on Spotify (.html or Spotify app), which omits any narratives included in the Duane FM version of the show.

And if you are so inclined, please hit the tip jar.
