Boxcar

Boxcar Willie’s “Winds Of Yesterday” is pretty cool ol’ country.

Not sure where we’re going with this, so let’s go retro with Little Isador and The Inquisitors.

Have a great weekend, folks, and be careful goin’ home.

Red Nichols & His Five Pennies rocked your grandparents, assuming your grandparents were entirely cool and bitchin’. (Of course they were.)
