WYNN - Today's Sunday Morning Song!

Megan Moroney  - Tennessee Orange

Every now and again a nice song comes out that goes in a very different direction and that always captures my attention.  In a time where there is angst in a lot of songs in various of formats, not just ours, it's nice to hear a song that actually has something nice to say about the significant other in one's life.  By the way, it's OKAY to say nice things about them, and to be happy!  And if that's not your truth, it's important to remember -  you picked them.  There seems to be an ongoing race to write the next "angry anthem" and this is a nice change.

This song is a phone call to her family that states she supports her new beau by wearing Tennessee Orange for him as he cheers for Volunteer football, but she is clearly a Georgia football fan at heart.  Showing support for anyone is a good thing too.  Plus, this is a real country song and I respect that as well.  It's heartfelt, delivered honestly, and for me, this song has the right idea.

Refreshing - Well done!

WYNN - Too Cold To Take A Mow - But Soon Enough

It's far too cold and wet to mow the lawn right now, and that's fine.  I do get tired of mowing the lawn come October, but it generally is a job I don't mind.  I'm like you, you like when the lawn looks great with straight lines and sharp edges and corners. - Me too.

But why do we as Americans have this obsession with our lawns?  Found this article and I found it very interesting, take a read...

First off - God Bless All Truckers  -  And THANK YOU!  -  This is the first on my list NOT released during my time so far on country radio. This was a big #1 from 1975,  I joined in 1981.  But I played this AM Radio gem for years on great radio stations across America.  Joe Stampley's truckin' anthem to me was the straightforward, definitive song of the "Truck and CB Radio" craze era, along with East Bound And Down from Jerry Reed.  The era culminated with the Smokey And The Bandit movies of the late 70's and early 80's.  This song captures the pride truckers feel about their rig, and their job as it is as important as any there is.  Everything you own was on a truck at some point.  This is not parody like "Convoy" or "The White Knight"  or many other truckin' songs from the era.  Stampley sounds like a trucker in this song, that's arranged traditionally, and zips along like a Freightliner down the Ohio Turnpike.  And yes, that IS an actual semi-truck starting up at the beginning as he mic-ed up a real tractor.  Country music has many faces, and Truckin' Songs are among them, although not in favor anymore. But a good truckin' song is just good driving medicine.  Well done, Joe!

Last Week #47

 

For the past few years I've been writing my Country Music Memory Lane Series and my Mega Star Series.  They post here on Thursdays and will continue to do so.

Over the past 42 years I've played Country Music continuously on the radio. I am NOT saying these are the BEST songs, just the ones I enjoy the most.

WYNN - The End Of The Queen Of The Skies

SW small Logo Since 1968 the Boeing 747 has been the Queen Of The Skies passenger plane.  A gigantic wide bodied plane that changed many things about long distance flying with its huge size and distinctive front hump design.  Boeing will not make anymore of them.

They made about 1,600 over the years and it fought off others who tried to challenge it, like the Lockheed L-1011 and the McDonnell Douglas DC-10.  It had a great safety record as well, plus it was so "American."   It will be replaced by the 777, The Dreamliners,  and others, as far as new production is concerned.  It dominated the skies for a half a century as the best wide bodied passenger plane on earth.

It was a mighty aircraft too, and for those who don't remember the NASA Space Shuttle Program - they used to fly the Shuttle back to Florida from California once in a while strappedon THE BACK OF A 747!!  Can you imagine being that pilot?

How Cool Is THAT?

Here is a cool article about it.

WYNN - Eat of The Week - Gimme A Sammich!

There are people in the world, and in MY WORLD that don't like sandwiches, and I simply can't relate.  I mean what's wrong with these peeps?  There have been entire decades when they were the main staple of my diet, and maybe that wasn't the best diet, but the are good.

I have admit, I do like fresh sandwich ideas and there are a bunch of then here.   So let's break out the bread, bagels, and baguettes and get to work.

ENJOY!

You GOTTA Try These Sammiches!!

SW small Logo  Darius Rucker surprised everyone years ago he stated he was going country and I am glad he did.  His music over the years is loved, and overall has been great.  When he released this Bob Dylan written song from 1973, it was an instant hit.  This is one of the more fun songs of this newer century and he was the perfect artist for it.  The catchy, bouncy beat and slick video with easy to remember words are the signature of any hit song.  This is one of those songs that could be a blueprint for others to follow.  It makes you happy and sometimes I think we need a whole lot more of that in country.  Understanding that not all songs can be this way, it is interesting to note as I put this top 50 list together there are all kinds of songs, but there are a lot that make you smile and happy.  Darius Rucker is a supreme vocalist, who sounds great singing just about any kind of song.  As a singer, he is among our best, if not the best, he's a total pro.  Just a flat out GREAT song.  Go ahead, click below and sing along, you know you want to.

WYNN - Eat Of The Week!

I am not a gigantic "sweet" eater.  I do love Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, and...pie.   I also love ice cream, but being honest I don't eat much of either.   But I do love Chocolate Chip Cookies, and if they're in the house, I will eat them.  They are magnificent! 

I grew up in Berea and there is a bakery called Dick's Bakery that has the most amazing ones ever.  When I travel there I have to pick up a dozen.  But I found this article doing some show prep that can help us make the best ones at the house.

Take a look!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!
