In March and April alone, there are more than 36 shows all over the northern part of the state. Today's "Cowboy Tracks" features music from these performers who will be in NorCal soon; some of whom are rarely in the area, such as Mary Kaye, Corb Lund and the High Country Cowboys.

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.
