These Are a Few of My Favorite Things: The Tennessee Border Show
12-2 p.m. on WKCR 89.9 fm, right after the Moonshine Show, is my favorite radio show.
Named after Hank Williams’ darling song of the same name, the show “focuses on the masters of country music from the latter-half of the twentieth century… Over the years, the show has established itself as a source for information about ‘real’ country music, where elsewhere, commercial country has had the effect of erasing the real music from the record.”
As a gal who has been about this country, driving for hours with no music but local “country” stations, I can attest to the current genre bearing no resemblance to the old masters. The Tennessee Border Show captures something that is long gone–a universal heartache from when all had bigger, deeper hearts.
