Plank Stompers

 Got a swell little mix for y'all today.  And stay tuned next week for a review of an album that just might unseat catl. for record of the year.  Yep.  We're in the process of moving (homes, not "sites"), so we apologize for the intermittent posting.  All shall be well.

Today's nifty mix is to celebrate the oncoming Spring (and eventual Summer), and the return of porch drinkin' and late nights.  And we're gonna go all honky yee-haw on yr asses.  Cuz that's our first love, dontcha know. 

We make these things based on whatever pops into our mind at the time (with at least a small theme in mind), so maybe we're repeating some shit you've already heard at this here site.  Most of it, not.  But it's all of a piece, so check it out.  Some of the best songs are towards the end.  Or in the middle.  Maybe, at the beginning.  Who knows?

Anyhow, warm up the banjos and the fiddles and the soles of yr boots, and enjoy.  Please support the artists when and if you can!

Oh, and we love the Grand 'Ol Opry.  Just sayin'.

For years "dead skunk" would creep into my mind. Heard it maybe three times in my entire life up until now and with the new radio formats I thought I would never hear it again.

Thanks for unlocking many fond memories!
