Wow, thanks for that inspired eulogy and Happy Birthday!

listener mark

I propose a national holiday, a prayer, and a drink. (righteous post Dave.)

Listener Greg G.

Great post, Dave. I echo Mark's sentiments: let's have a holiday. Shit, make it a whole week.

It's true, Hank Williams was a genius. Every song he wrote is brilliant on some level and the way those recordings sound shake my very soul.


Yeah, but he was no Charlie Poole ...


Great blog Dave. Spot on.


Yeah, and Charlie Poole was no Hank Williams either (thankfully). Obviously they were both brilliant, but as 'FMU has been proving for the last 50 years, there's more than enough room in this world for only two brilliant musicians. Last but by no means least, thank you Dave! And happy 50th to FMU!

I think that's Anita Carter on the left in the praying picture. Hank had it bad for Anita but Grady Martin a-scared him off o' her.
