In Merle Haggard: The Running Kind, DAVID CANTWELL takes us on a revelatory journey through Haggard’s music and the life and times out of which it came. Taking in the entire breadth of the Hag’s career, David focuses especially on the 1960s and 1970s when Haggard created much of his best-known and most influential work. Listening closely to a masterpiece-crowded catalogue (including such songs as Today I Started Loving You Again, Okie from Muskogee, Sing Me Back Home, Mama Tried, Working Man Blues, and If We Make It through December, among many others), David Cantwell explores the fascinating contradictions - the desire for freedom in the face of limits set by the world or self-imposed, most of all - that define not only Haggard’s music and persona but the very heart of Country music. This book is published by the University of Texas Press as part of their American Music Series. Order the book from them here: http://utpress.utexas.edu/index.php/books/canmep
Music critic and longtime Haggard fan, DAVID CANTWELL is also the co-author of the acclaimed Heartaches By The Number: Country Music's 500 Greatest Singles, and his work has appeared in the Oxford American, Salon and No Depression, among other publications. He lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
Country artist JAMIE WARREN lives in Kitchener-Waterloo, but was raised in Hanover Ontario, where he pursued an adolescent dream of playing hockey professionally in the NHL, with music as a background distraction. When he realized that his natural abilities for singing and playing guitar might make it easier to attract the attention of girls, he hung up his blades. It was a logical progression for a sensitive guy who wrote poetry and short stories throughout his high school years.
His interest in music was likely genetic, since his mother sang and played piano, and his father played guitar and mandolin. Jamie had piano lessons at age 5 and guitar lessons at age 8, and by the time he was 10 years old, it was traditional for the Warrens to entertain after Saturday night euchre games in their smoke-filled basement. His earliest influences were whatever his parents listened to on the radio, and the only thing his parents radio seemed to play was country music. To this day, he’s still a huge fan of Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette and Patsy Cline.
Eventually, he began an association with producer J. Richard Hutt, who produced “Right Here Right Now” and all of Jamie’s previous recordings, but who initially engaged Jamie as a singer for jingles he produced out of his Kitchener-based CedarTree Studios. “I didn’t have a clue what I was doing” says Jamie, “but Rick had a lot of patience”. In 1993, Jamie was convinced that both radio and Nashville might have relaxed enough to make room for him again, and he released “Fallen Angel” on River North/Mercury Records, which yielded an enduring fan favourite and radio hit, “One Step Back”. There were many more hits to follow for this talented Canadian artist.
Tune in for stories & songs from Jamie on this episode of In The Country.

The Queens College women's basketball team aka Knights, are at a 4-0 in the Eastern Conference. Much is due to a sister team of Madison and MacKenzie Rowland both scoring doubles-doubles. Madison has gotten much kudos and awards these days. Next game will be played as Madison Square Garden against Immaculata. Why? It's the 40 anniversary of the 1975 game that first got women's basketball into MSG thanks to former Head Coach Lucille Kyvallos.
It will be the first time that this present team will be playing at MSG. Let's hear from Madison.

In these difficult days and times we often look to spiritual leaders for guidance and instruction in our lives. As Christians (followers of Christ) should these leaders speak from their mind, or from what is written based on the word of God? This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through JesusChrist, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am all eastern time.
Women's basketball continues to shine. There are colleges teams all over the country. The team that made history was back in the early 70s as the The Knights Women's Basketball were the first to play at Madision Square Garden. Queens College still has a great team. Lucille Kyvallos reigned as the head coach in the 70s. Beth Naumoviski is now looking to take the team to the championship. The season will begin next week. Who are the new players? Who should we look out for? What is expected when members of an athletic team still have to make sure that their studies are completed?
