It’s time for another edition of classic country on Sunday night’s Pickin'. The golden age of country music yielded dozens of great artists like Porter Waggoner, Kitty Wells, David Houston, and plenty of others including a set from the duo Johnny and Jack. Johnny Wright and Jack Anglin were early members of the Grand Ole Opry and had great success as a performing duo in the 1950s. Johnny Wright was the husband of the queen of country music Kitty Wells. Jack Anglin died in a traffic accident in 1963 while on his way to the funeral for Patsy Cline. Johnny Wright would continue performing a solo act and had numerous charting singles through the 1960s including the huge 1965 hit “Hello Vietnam.” Go back to the golden age of country music on Pickin'. Sunday night at 7 on 89.5.

On this week’s Acoustic Highway, we’ll feature songs all about the road and traveling. We’ll hear music from Tom Kimmel, America, Son Volt, Catie Curtis, and Gordon Lightfoot. Lightfoot’s “Carefree Highway’ was released in 1974 when the Canadian artist's career was beginning to peak. He had a number-one album behind the hit “Sundown” and one year later released his hit ”Rainy Day People.” Lightfoot said the song was a metaphor for trying to escape the memory of a lost love affair. The song was also included on his 1988 release Gord’s Gold. Tune in for a trip down the highway with songs all about… a highway.. Sunday night at 9 on WHRV.
