"Asleep At The Wheel's" Tributes' To "Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys"
This month's program will be broken up into three 1 hour segments:
HOUR 1 will be our usual mix of country, western, country folk, country blues, rockabilly, bluegrass and western swing.
HOUR 2 guest host Retta Christie will join us as we play music from the era when "Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys" were considered by many to be the top Western Swing Band.
HOUR 3 will be exclusively devoted to playing music from the two cd's "Tribute to the Music of Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys" and "Ride with Bob". Both cd's are tribute albums to the music of "Bob Wills and The Texas Playboys" by the Western Swing Band "Asleep At The Wheel" and their guests. There will be copies of both cd's, available for gifts to membership donors, as our program falls on the last day of the KBOO Winter Membership Drive. The cd's have been signed by Cindy Cashdollar, who was the steel guitar player for "Aseep At The Wheel" when both of these albums were produced. She is also the first female inductee into the "Texas Steel Guitar Hall of Fame", she was inducted in 2011.
