About the show

Playing tracks by

Claude Casey, John Prine, Merle haggard, Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell and more.

"I know a honky-tonk where we can go.
A booth in the back with the lights way down low.
The jukebox is playing a sad melody
for heart-broken lovers like you and me.
We'll laugh and we'll flirt and we'll dance every dance
and before the night's over we'll take a chance.
The morning will find us with a smile on our face
and we'll be together in a lover's embrace." - David Berman

That's the goal of honky tonkin'. But, oftentimes, the reality is thus:

"Now you have troubles that you need to drown.
You can't do it by honky tonking round.
You may stay out every night,
But you'll never win the fight.
So don't go honky tonking anymore.
Now that I have almost blowed my top.
And something tells me I had better stop.
So I'm changing all my ways,
And getting myself out of this daze,
And I ain't going honky tonking anymore." - Ernest Tubb

This mix is dedicated the good, the bad, and the ugly side of honky tonkin'.
