GUEST,Frogmore 'Country Music' airplay (21) 'Country Music' airplay 12 May 01

I have really gotten a kick out of the fact that the soundtrack of "O Brother, Where Art Thou" has sold so well in spite of the fact that it had no airplay on commercial "country stations." Why do you have to be a "hunk" with a 4-day beard (or the female epuivalent - I'll leave that description alone) to get airplay. Are Merle Haggard, George Jones, Willie, Emmylou, etc. NOT writing and/or recording worthwhile songs anymore? Methinks not. Comments on the narrowly-formatted and fashion-driven playlists are welcome. In response to the "Play some COUNTRY!" request, I used to do a rendition of "Greensleeves." It's a "country" tune from another country from another century. Viva Ralph Stanley!
