Recently inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame, Buck Owens
created a new style of Country Music with his "Bakersfield Sound"
in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s. Ron features some of Buck’s famous
recordings, most of which were chart toppers. Buck, himself, tells
how many of these songs were written and explains how his last hit
song, "The Streets Of Bakersfield", with Dwight Yoakam came about.
One of the newest member of the Country Music Hall Of Fame, Ray Price
has had a diverse County Music career starting in the mid 50s with his
little Cherokee Cowboy band and progressing into the 80’s when his
musical arrangements required 11 additional violins to a full orchestra
to recreate the lush instrumentation of his Columbia recordings. Ron
remembers working with Ray when he had changed from wearing a western
shirt and jeans to a formal tuxedo and playing his hit songs in the
1970’s as they constantly crossed over to the Pop Music Charts. Ron plays
many of Ray’s hits and talks about the career of this Country Music giant.

popular songs. The show ends with a rare recording of hank signing off
his radio show and singing his gospel classic, "I Saw The Light."
