You guys are not missing it, I hope? Sunday - Wednesday.
This is a terrific series and it inspired me to dig out some older Patsy Cline and Hank Williams recordings but instead of playing them on my superior Linn LP 12, I opted to play them on my Newcomb classroom player because I wanted to duplicate the sound and experience of the 50's and 60's when most records were played through similar systems. Brought back a lot of memories and the sound actually sounds more authentic to me...just being nostalgic.
Waylon Jennings cracks me up!
It can be a bit draggy, going a bit too deep into people like Mel Tillis, but fascinating stuff and excellent social history. The story of the Carter family is just WILD!
It's sure draggy. Why, there's nothing there but country music!
Where's the rap? Heavy metal? Techno?
Useless without Kanye West or Fi'ty Cent. Or Led Zepplin.
I meant Bob Wills, not Mel Tillis.
I thought, at 16 hours, it had to be at least somewhat self-indulgent. Now, having seen the first episode, it actually might be too short. Just brilliant; maybe the best TV I've seen since Elvis Costello's "Spectacle".

It is excellent and very informative
