Listen: “Lost” Johnny Cash/Waylon Jennings Duet

"The Man in Black," Johnny Cash, passed away on September 12, 2003. From 1958 until the mid-1980's, he was one of Columbia Records' biggest-selling acts. However, when his sales began to taper off in the mid-80's, he was unceremoniously dropped from that label.  In his final years, he recorded a large body of songs for what became known as the "American" albums, named after the label for which they were recorded, Rick Rubin's American Recordings. Those albums gave Cash's career a boost as he entered his twilight years.

A Piece Of Country Music History

Folks who know me know that I really LIKE Country music! From the days of playing in my first Country bands to becoming a Country radio personality, I've been a serious 'student' of the music, its history, and the people who make it. Certain places, instruments and artifacts connected with Country's rich history are almost "sacred" to me. In the mid-1990's, I worked on the air in Bakersfield, CA at a station owned by the late, great Buck Owens. One of Buck's biggest--and most beloved--hits with his band, The

Are Vinyl Records Making A Comeback?

Yes, I'm old enough to remember vinyl records...I still have a bunch, and a turntable on which to play them! The old saying, "Everything 'old' is 'new' again" seems to be true with the way folks like to listen to music. As I said, I still have probably a couple of hundred albums, dozens of 45's, and even a few box sets! I've always thought vinyl sounded better than just about anything they've come up with over the years! Check out this article, and the surprising new statistics regarding good ol' vinyl records!

A Beatles Reunion? In Victoria, Texas??

This coming February 9th will mark fifty years since their first American television performance on the Ed Sullivan Show. in 1964. Now, it would appear the two surviving members will reunite for a special performance, as

Goodbye, North Star Drive Ball Field!

If you haven't driven up North Star Drive in Victoria recently (that's the street where the KIXS 108/Townsquare Media studios and offices are), then you may not have seen the flurry of earth-moving activity happening on the piece of land in the middle of the two sections of the street. This area of grassy field had been, for many years, a place where aspiring Major League players would learn and practice their baseball skills. A rusty backstop is the only evidence left of what was once, I'm sure, a "field of dreams." And, it's only a matter of time before
