The greatest Country & Western singer of all time has died.

My favorite George Jones song is "The Window Up Above"....although "The Grand Tour" might be the best weep-in-your-beer single ever.

It was my pleasure to meet George on various occasions when the Seattle country radio station I worked for in the '70's brought him to town. And I did one of my "wacky' interviews with him as my 'alter ego', The old-Timer."

At that time, our Program Director had an apartment built for himself in the Space Needle as a promotion for the station. When I asked George to come up and see the apartment he said: "I don't DO heights, you ain't gettin' ME up there!" Ha! Ha!

I feel so fortunate to have worked in radio at a time when it didn't take "a Presidential Proclamation" to get backstage. AND when they sang REAL country music!!

George was truly "Mr. Country Music" and is already greatly missed.

Sorry, had to say it. Play on possum , play on.

A sad loss. I loved all of his music. I'm sure he's still singing and one day I'll hear him again.

Great loss.
