Twang Thang

Twang Thang features outlaw country old and new, featuring the folks who sowed the harder-edged musical seeds for what we today call Americana, as well as the newer artists who continue the tunes and outlaw ethos forward. George Jones, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Lucinda Willimans, Steve Earle, Dwight Yoakum, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Billie Jo Shaver...Americana music didn't just show up one day; it has deep and varied country music roots. Twang Thang explores both the originators and the newcomers, checking out a bunch of the music that happened along the way.

Every Sunday morning, I listen to the program while driving my route around town. Every once and a while I have a delivery out on one of the county roads. There is no better feeling than tearing down those roads (at a reasonable speed of course) listening to the program at full volume. Keep up the good work, and I encourage everyone to tune in.
