Used to listen to country stations too…

I grew up with pop/rock on 1230 W-I-R-O THE BIG I! in Ironton (which still had live and local music DJ’s to 1995!)

US 23.  Eastern Kentucky’s Only Road.  The Main Street of Eastern Kentucky…  From Jenkins to Ashland to South Shore…

In the 80′s country music wasn’t that much different from pop…  This one I heard on 800 WHTN and 1420 WTCR:

If country sounded like this today I’d listen to nothing else…

My favorite Johnny Cash song:

I think this was his masterpiece…

And of course the father of country music…  And the inventor of Bluegrass…  Kentucky’s Bill Monroe:

US Route 23′s Official Song:

 

The greatest show in the history of TV

And the only good thing to come of the horrid 1960′s.  Other than NASA.

Ironically, just as he turned me on to John Wayne, my dad (who to this day is a communist) introduced me to Star Trek.  Which I was hooked on in the early 1980′s on.  They used to show it on TV only during the summer.  And I was glued to the TV each time it was shown.  I’ve seen every one of the 79 original episodes…  dozens and dozens of times.  If I could be anyone, it would be Captain James T. Kirk, the greatest hero ever produced in fiction.
