Today was the last regularly-scheduled Red Rooster Party on WHUS. There is a chance we will do a few more shows, but they will be occasional appearances not on the summer schedule. Marti and I are moving to NC soon, and we had to end it sometime, and now is the time.
We were preempted in our usual time slot 2-4pm, so we moved the show up two hours to 12-2pm to bring you the entire show.
We remembered my horse, Aero, who died the day before after a nearly 30-year lifespan. We played the original version of "Goodbye Old Pal" by Cliff Carlisle in tribute as well as the Bill Monroe version a little later in the show. Our equine pals are down to two remaining, and while the pasture is lonelier now, we will be taking them with us to NC.
We played some of my favorite early country music in the first half of the show, and Joe Bussard had a wonderful Country Classics show during the second half playing some early favorites and a handful of rare recordings I had not only not heard before, but had not heard OF either.
Check the radio around the usual time slot on Sunday afternoons through May and you might catch us again. If you join our Facebook page, we will even give you advance notice.
Until then, all our best.
