luv361 Some Country Station

Some Country Station

near the end of the 1970s i was hauling an 18 wheeler all over the country pretty much non-stop, chasing the almighty dollar. one day, on a lonesome stretch of highway, i was fumbling around on the AM dial and i hit a bump. my hand jerked and fell upon some random country music station. i became transfixed to the radio, lost in music. after almost an hour the station faded out of reception and the radio went silent. rolling down the road in quiet solitude i reminisced on life, death, love, hatred, beauty, fear, fate and where my puzzle piece fits into it all. as best as i can recall, these are the songs the radio played that day, so long ago.

when someone signs up for the ambient revolution that means they are ready to drift into unknown sonic territory. knowing that they will not return unchanged, they fearlessly open their minds and entangle them in this timeless mirage. lie back and listen if you want to know more.

“what’s gonna happen to this old world if the people don’t change their ways?” a question pondered in this collection of blues, country and folk music from the early to mid 20th century. unfortunately this question seems even more relevant today. lookin’ like we need more outlaws to take from the rich and give to the poor.
