After a week away, (hopefully you enjoyed the look back at a previous show), I am back and ready to roll with a crate packed full of classic country music. The records and CD’s are loaded and ready to go for your weekly trip into history. This week, the music is especially wide ranging from vintage 1930’s-era Jimmie Davis, all the way to one of Brad Paisley’s earliest hits. Lots of stops in between, as well. Should be a great show, this week. Join me at 4p ET, today, on WSFM-LP/AshevilleFM. It’s 103.3FM, here in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, or online at the AshevilleFM website.
And beginning Friday morning, you can hear the program in it’s entirety on our AshevilleFM page.
It is indeed the show for lovers of music. Real music, Classic music, Country music the way it used to be. This week, it’s a great lineup of all time favorites that you’ll remember. This week, Elvis is on tap, also early Reba McEntire, some Eddy Arnold from his Tennessee Plowboy days, one of George Strait’s many number one hits, an early effort from Paulette Carlson (remember her?) from her pre-Highway 101 days, some hot licks from Chet Atkins’ galloping guitar, good slow dancing music from Anne Murray, some fun Johnny Cash, and a whole lot more. Sound good? Then be sure to tune in, this afternoon, 4p ET, for Ultimate Twang with me, Mike Your Country Musicologist. Here in Asheville, simply turn your radio on to 103.3FM. Worldwide, you can listen on the AshevilleFM website, via the TuneIn app on most smart devices, or the AshevilleFM app, on your Android device, free from the Google Play Store.
And, if you can’t join me for the live broadcast, you can listen to the archived version, beginning Friday morning on Ultimate Twang’s AshevilleFM page.
