Please check out the release of my Audio Book/Folk Musical, "THE CAROL"..

From the "An Audio Book Full of Music" review...

"With the music, it’s an unforgettable experience to hear this book. If
you are open to old-style country music (such as the O Brother Where Art
Thou sound track), you will also enjoy this audio book." - Phyllis Wheeler

You should check out that Music City Roots show, Rob. Really good. I think that I'm going to be on it before too long. As for Eddie, we've met several times but we're not chums or anything. I do love his radio voice and his knowledge of Country Music though. He, Hazel Smith and Bob Oermann probably know more than anyone in Nashville. about the history of Country records and artists. They have some great stories, especially Hazel. Anyway, glad you like the spot. I'll be sending you a post from the Belfast thing as well. Cheers-Jefferson
