Thread Name: Johnny Cash on NPR & looking for songs
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash on NPR & looking for songs
I heard that piece also this morning. Uh, folks, i hate to mention it but 'ol Johnny is getting pretty old and in bad health and he don't really sound too good anymore. Johnny Cash held me when i was a baby. Think he'd remember me and want to record one of my songs? I really don't know why he was holding me, i think everyone was just sitting around and someone handed me to Johnny to hold while they went to get a beer or something. Just kidding, my uncle hosted? arranged? one of his first public performances after they got out of broadcasting school, back in the early 50's before anyone had ever heard of Johnny Cash.
