Compilation: Songs That Mention George Strait

You hear us say this on the air all the time: "We're the only station that plays a George Strait song for you every hour..." Here in South Texas, it's difficult to find anybody who doesn't at least LIKE "King George," and frankly, most folks LOVE his music! So do a lot of other artists and songwriters. How many other songs "name-drop" the King of Country Music? This video contains a few!

Skeeter’s Found a Home!

If you read a post I put up here last week, you know that my wife Sweetie and I have been hunting for a house to rent in Victoria. Well, y'all can stop searching for us now...we've found a home! It's a nice house on the northeast side of Victoria, with plenty of room for me, Sweetie, my "bonus" son, Kris (who lives with us due to a physical disability), our three dogs and 2 cats. We hope to be all moved in before the end of April.

Anyone Can Be A Ham!

I've written several posts here about my hobby of amateur radio (aka "ham" radio). It's a hobby for anybody interested in communications (emergency and otherwise), electronics, technology, of just having fun! Age, gender, or having a disability need not keep you from getting your amateur radio license, and joining in on the fun! Take, for example, a third-grader from Lumberton, TX (near Beaumont), who recently obtained her ham license!

Skeeter Singing With The Legendary Buck Owens

Country Music Hall of Fame member Buck Owens passed away on this day (March 25th) in 2006. I worked for Buck on one of his Bakersfield, CA radio stations (KTIE-FM) in the mid-1990's. During that time, Buck's dream of a first-class steakhouse/nightclub/concert venue/museum, the Crystal Palace was being built right next door.

After it opened, Buck performed there with his band, the Buckaroos, nearly every weekend. One particular night, I was at the Palace with my best friend since high school (and phenomenal guitarist/singer), David Langley, who had come down from Fresno to celebrate his birthday. Buck spotted me in the audience, and asked me to get up and sing a song with him and the Buckaroos.
