Songs About Trucking


Well, I sure had a bunch of fun doing ‘Sweethearts’ number 10 and Randy was still about 50% holiday cocktails so he let me at it another time. It ain’t all trucks friends, but it kicks off once again with the Baron of Country Dick Curless and goes strong on the whole truck/road/suchlike thing for the first hour or so. Although I guess you could say we keep with the journey thread pretty much to the end. Should you be the sort to care about that. Among the dust and diesel fumes there’s a handful of new or new-ish tunes from Dolly Parton, Johnny Dowd, Holly Golightly, My Darling Clementine and the wonderful Neko Case. Should you need to take this show on a road trip all of yer own you can now click the title there to download it, I’ll get it up on mixcloud for easy streaming soon too. Enjoy, and remember friends,  Tiredness can kill – take a break

  1. Looks excellent as always…any chance of dl links for SotR 9 & 10 or were they lost in The Great Hard Drive Disaster of March ’14? Have you heard Big Rock Candy Mountain’s Road Hog mix by the way? Great companion to Songs About Trucking.
