Once upon a time you could turn on your radio and hear music with lyrics that meant something, with a beat you could tap your toes to. This was music as American as it gets, music from the streets of Philly and the backroads of Alabama, from the joints of Memphis, to the clubs of Los Angeles, from stadium stages to high-school sock-hops. It was Classic Country, sounds from the 60's, 70's, 80's and some of the 90's, with songs that could make you laugh,cry, tug at your heart strings and recognize yourself.That kind of music and that kind of radio seems to be fading away, but an old time radio man decided that somebody needed to keep that kind of music rolling for folks like him..and like you.
