Last night I learned that Red is the voice of Cowboy Corner “America’s Favorite Authentic Western Radio Program”

Honestly I wasn’t too excited about hearing Red and his band but the owner of our local music store offered to pay me so I decided to go.  So I got there around 3 and started setting up the sound gear.  The band arrived around 4:30 and we got the sound check done.  I was truly amazed at their tight harmonies and how the played their guitars.  They have been playing together for 30 years now.  As I said last night, “That’s a lot of experience” and Danny Stegall said, “No.  That’s a lot of practice.”

Oh and the free steak dinner was awesome.
