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.’”
I believe in freedom of speech, but as a staunch Conservative, this podcast sickened my stomach. It is super left wing as I have deleted the first few podcasts after less than a minute of play each. I have never understood the logic of the left wing Democrat Party and gave up trying to a long time ago. The last straw was the propaganda message from the interview with Paul Bogola (sp?) on why the Dems are going to carry Texas in this next election. Sickening & untrue. If Dems ever win, you can count on losing your personal freedoms in a very short period of time. You think the mass exodus from California is bad!!!?
