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.

Larry King Heart Bar of berry sorbet and merlot wine. The Buzz Café of coffee ice cream and Irish Cream. Blitzed Berry with strawberry ice cream and rum. Bourbon Street Chocolate has chocolate ice cream and whiskey. Citrus Berry Drop with raspberry lemon drop sorbet and lemon vodka. The Drunken Cookie of cookies and cream ice cream with bourbon. Vanilla Daze has vanilla ice cream with cognac. Amy Freeman will give us the lowdown. . www.buzzbaricecream.com

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?

Once again we are going back up to Southern Vermont to the area of Manchester. It is there that a pastry and candy company called Mother Myricks is located. They are well know for having the best butter crunch candy and a particular cake called Lemon Lulu. Ron Mancini is the owner of this establishment. I will eventually do a taste test between their brownie and one from Fairytale Brownies. In the meantime we can hear how some of the confections are made....without giving any secrets away.
We are going to Southern Vermont in the area of Manchester. Hildene is the former home of Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of Abraham and Mary. There are several significants to this historic estate that included a Pullman railroad car. Paula Maynard will tour us around.
