Ep 76

If fuzzy math serves well, Willie is 86, the same year Redheaded Stranger was released, so there’s synchronicity to the restoration of the film. It was a treat to hear another interview with Willie, whose music has been a mainstay the entirety of my 49 years. He is a son and statesman of Texas in the most profound of senses. If someone were to ask, “What does Texas truly sound like?” My answer would have to be, “Go listen to Willie Nelson play the bridges from Townes Van Zandt’s ‘Pancho and Lefty’ and his own ‘Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground.’”

Ruined by politics

Lots of potential. Tried to listen to four episodes. Only one, with Nolan Ryan, did not contain some type of politically Left leaning bias and loaded words. I just wanted to hear interesting things about Texas, not listen to Liberal propaganda.
