Country Comedy

In 1972, the Statler Brothers introduced us to Lester "Roadhog" Moran and his Cadillac Cowboys. They were an exaggeration of an awful country band trying to make it in Nashville, complete with a 15 minute radio show on Saturday mornings on the fictional WEAK in Rainbow Valley. They also played the Johnny Mack Brown High School dance every Saturday night and released two albums, Country Music Here And Now and Alive at the Johnny Mack Brown High School. Listen to Alive and you will become a fan of the Statlers.

I do believe it was on Ol'Pal Irwin's show that I first heard this merry madness. Many thanks for letting me have a digital copy of my very own.

Yeah, thanks for this great stuff. Not only are The Statlers very talented, but they also have a huge sense of humor.
