>> White Keys was kind of a musical comedy/spoof act that played forever at the Fly By Night in Anchorage. Alot of music and alot of FUN!!!
Ah . . . yeah, that sure doesn't sound like the acts they book into the Red Dog.
>> King Salmon Oooohlala -- Hard Core
Well we're not Bethel, but we try ;-)
>> I am in Girdwood.
Ah . . . you have roads . . . I am envious.
When my in-laws asked what I wanted for my birthday last year I told them to send 500 miles of pavement, they didn't come through :-(
Yeah, I read about the young man who died on Alyeska yesterday - that's a shame. There is a clip that often gets shown on the "real-life" crashes & wrecks television programs of someone tumbling down the mountain. I've saw it several times and it seems that person fell for hours.

Ernest Tubb, the old Texas Troubadour himself. I like that old honky tonk music too.
I grew up listening to that old (real) country - Patsy Cline, the three Hanks (Hank Williams, Hank Thompson, & Hank Snow), & etc.
Vocally, Junior Brown sometimes reminds me of Hank Snow. Are you familiar with him? When I listen to him singing "Rhumba Boogie," "Golden Rocket," or "I Don't Hurt Anymore," it seems likely to me that Junior Brown grew up listening to Snow as well.
For those who aren't familiar with Snow, here's a sample, no video, but it's the real deal.http://youtube.com/watch?v=mdOh2i-ycVs

I also have to say that the gentlemen Brady mention when he started the thread are also good . . . it is hard to beat the music of Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, and Steve Earle. This CD is amazing:http://countrymusic.about...irdrev.htm
I love Earle's "Mercenary Song" - it has a certain Warren Zevon quality to it.http://youtube.com/watch?v=WHE1dM4hYCw
So . . . anyone in to Tom Waits' music?
Man, I wish the ice would go out . . . I am more than ready for spring :-)
