This is long. And I have mentioned it before.
But I listened to it again the other night. And once again I found it fascinating.
Speaking of how songs came to be, here's another great NPR interview.
Had NPR's “Morning Edition” on while riding the bus and heard an interview subject be described as “a Kansas City rancher.”
Perhaps his spread is in the general vicinity of the Missouri metro. But I find it hard to believe that this guy's ranch is actually in Kansas City.
I suspect someone simply forgot the word “area.”
But you never know when someone on one of the coasts actually believes that all life here in flyover country is essentially rural.
Do you recognize that song lyric?
If you do, you might want to go to www.npr.org and track down a recent installment from an “All Things Considered” series in which listeners talked about music that their parents loved. (Is that a great idea for radio or what?)
Anyway, the on-air conversation to which I'm alluding sort of got to me. Apparently I was not alone.
