Cowboy Tracks for 1:00pm on Sep 4th, 2020

"Gotta Be Free." This episode of the Cowboy Tracks radio program is called "Gotta Be Free" because so much of the call of the west and the western lifestyle is the desire to explore and to have room to roam. Please enjoy today's western music, cowboy poetry and western swing around this theme.

Cowboy Tracks for 1:00pm on Aug 21st, 2020

"Where the City Ends." Where the City Ends is the title of a song (by Chris Brashear and Peter McLauglin) on today's episode of Cowboy Tracks. Western music is the place where the city ends and the ranching, farming, cowboy and outdoor world take foothold. The roots music that comes from there is simply wonderful. So, please join us this hour and  enjoy! 

Cowboy Tracks for 1:00pm on Jul 31st, 2020

"We’re Back!”. Here’s host Nancy in her backyard recording the first new episode of the Cowboy Tracks show since the pandemic began. Today's program is an especially gentle and upbeat episode of authentic western music to serve as as a soothing counterbalance to the world at large. You are invited to listen in and rest a spell!

Hi Nancy,
I enjoyed visiting with you today on "Cowboy Tracks"
I wanted to set the record straight. During your show, I made a comment about recently deceased, Doris Day. In fact, Doris Day starred in "Calamity Jane" not "Annie Oakley"
Sorry, my mistake... Really love your show... Keep keepin' on with the great tracks!
Oh, BTW... John Fremont's guide and messenger was Kit Carson.

I am really excited about your interview with Dale's former long time manager (Dick Baxter).  Can't wait to hear his stories of the good ole days with Roy and Dale!

Right now I'm listening to your Western Swing show and it's too wonderful, it's beyond super. It's even really swell. Thank you for this Swing salute. More Swing and more...

Wow, thank you! This was the first time I've done an all-western swing show. Now, I'm encouraged to do more!

Listened to this varied Cowboy time last Friday. There was Cowboy poetry, music, definitions of terms...yes, so much time has pasted we need to know what used to be common words that relate to Cowboy and The West. Tune in for a good time.
