What? No "Lonesome, Lonesome George Jones" (by Queenie Montgomery)?

In the mid-90s, NPR's "Morning Edition" did a piece on Jones recording his then-latest LP, focusing on how much recording technology had watered down country music by sanding off all those rough edges. Would anyone, by some miracle, have a tape of this?

Motordog - thanks for the tip on another GJ tribute 45 to look for!
Henry - glad you liked the post, but what the heck does "si-Okay" mean????

I guess I never really thought about it before how many songs there are about George Jones, although what a worthy person.
That's got to be the pinacle of success when so many people write homages and make pop culture references to you.

You're missing one-
Daniel Johnston, from Continued Story,
"Ain't No Woman Gonna Make A George Jones Outta Me"

Thanks for the news!
Isn't there a Willie Nelson song that contains the line "Everyone who wants to sing wishes they could sing just like George Jones" -- or something like that?
Sorry, I can't remember the title.
Happy Birthday, Mr Jones!
