-- I gave you a brand new Ford But you said, "I want a Cadillac!" I bought you a ten dollar dinner And you said it was just a snack I let you live in my penthouse You said it was just a shack I gave you seven children And now you wanna give em back...
Ol’ B is getting up there—I think he turns 82 in Sept.
(born in Sept of ‘26, I believe)
IIRC, Isn’t BB a conservative?
I’ll have to wait for the merger. I have Sirius. Their blues station is great also.
If it’s as good as Bob Dylan’s show — sign me up!
Yeah that merger may go through (maybe 3-2 vote?) any time now. I have XM but have heard Sirius (car rental had it).
My first exposure to XM was just over a yr ago, when it
was on my Jet Blue flight
yeah I love blues (have been a longtime college radio blues
DJ) and other types of music; I like some of XM’s channels like Willie’s Place (13, classic country), Bluesville etc
Hey, I’m walking with my woman
She got great big feet
Long, lean and angry
She ain’t had nothing to eat
But she’s my woman
And I love her just the same
She’s a fine looking woman
And Caldonia is her name
