8/19/17:  Eddy Raven, SPECIAL GUEST IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW:  This Louisiana singer turns 73 today.  Although his records started getting airplay in the mid 70’s, he didn’t break through in a big way until 1984’s self-penned #1 song, “I Got Mexico.”  After that, he was all over country radio well into the 90’s with catchy tunes like “Joe Knows How To Live,” “Bayou Boys,” and “Shine, Shine, Shine.”  We talk with Raven today about his classic hit records, his new bluegrass album, and how he was assigned his name without consultation.

8/26/17:  Charley Pride, SPECIAL GUEST IN AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW:  Another legend joins Wayne on the Saturday Morning Classic Country Show today.  They’ll discuss what it was like for an African-American to break into the country music field during the sixties, his baseball career, and of course, his many classic hit records.  He had 29 #1 country records in his years with RCA Records and you’ll hear many of them with commentary from Charley Pride himself. Songs like “All I Have To Offer You Is Me,” “Is Anybody Goin’ To San Antone,” and his best-seller, “Kiss An Angel Good Morning.”  It will be an in-depth study and listen to Charley Pride’s career that any country fan would want to hear.

9/2/17:  Della “Mom” Upchurch:  You’ll get a real slice of country music history if you listen today.  For about twenty years after World War II, Della “Mom” Upchurch operated a rooming house in East Nashville for struggling country musicians.  Wayne will tell you all about “Mom” story and play a bunch of classic records by those who received her assistance.  The list of those who stayed in her home, usually for less than $10 a week, is a who’s who of some of country music’s most iconic names:  Roger Miller, Carl Smith, Faron Young, and legendary songwriter Hank Cochran, who wrote songs like “I Fall To Pieces” and “Make The World Go Away.”

9/7/17:  Freddy Weller:  Not much has been written about this singer/songwriter/guitarist who turns 70 years old today, but we give him a well-deserved spotlight segment today.  In his early years, he worked as a guitarist for Billy Joe Royal and Joe South.  He was also a member of Paul Revere & The Raiders, an American rock band that had several commercially successful singles in the sixties and seventies.  Of course, we’ll concentrate on his country career which took off in 1969 with the #2 hit “Games People Play.”   He went on to put 31 other songs on the country charts, including several top-tens, many of which you’ll hear if you tune in to this show.

9/14/17:  Bellamy Brothers:  David Bellamy, the younger of the two brothers and chief songwriter, turns 71 today.  David teamed up with his brother Howard to become one of the most successful country duos in history.  They ripped off a string of #1 songs during the seventies and eighties including “Let Your Love Flow,” “If I Said You Have A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me,” “Kids Of The Baby Boom,” and “Redneck Girl.”  We’ll play many of the Bellamy’s classic records on today’s show and tell you their story which began in the sunshine state of Florida.
