    If The Price Is Right (MP3)

    Houston Roberts  -  If The Price Is Right 

    Here's a foot-stompin' honky-tonker from Houston Roberts on Nashville's Little Darlin' label, an organization that  frequently peddled hard country sounds.  And speaking of prices, this seems like a fine time to gently remind you that WFMU's Rock & Soul Ichiban comes to you at all hours of the day and night completely free.  So if you feel like hitting the pledge button above to help us keep everything humming, we'd be grateful. 

    Creepy Chix Mix!

    Draculena - Aaron McNeill
