WS Holland is our guest for the next few episodes. He toured with Johnny Cash for nearly 40 years but before that played with Carl Perkins from the beginning of his Sun Records day through his first album on Columbia before joining up with Johnny. This week we here about those early days and the origin of how "Blue Suede Shoes" came about. We also hear the beginning of our "Favorite Johnny Cash Song Countdown" sponsored by Dr. Rubin's Pomade. This week, we hear songs #20-#16. And, if that's not enough, we hear new songs from The Mavericks, Planet Rockers and Pokey LaFarge. Our "Ask The Clowns" segment returns with The Reach Around Rodeo Clowns telling us their favorite Johnny Cash songs along with what prompted one of them to "get a beatin'"! All this and more on this week's Rockabilly N Blues Radio Hour!
