Capital Radio 8-15-22: From Saul to Lamont

A trip to Nebraska’s biggest city warrants a number of songs about that place as well as some of the music experienced there, from a roadhouse country band (pictured) that did a handful Merle Haggard to Charlie Burton’s Cutouts, now doing live karaoke for college kids who’d rather be singing “Wagon Wheel.” 

Noted the birthdates in 1925 of both Bill Pinkney of The Drifters and influential country singer Rose Maddox, as well as a further salute to Olivia Newton-John, who died last week, partially through recent interpretation of her songs by Juliana Hatfield.

In anticipation of the finale of TV’s first-rate “Better Call Saul,” 15 songs they’ve featured over six seasons. Closed with an hour of Holland-Dozier-Holland songs in memory of Lamont Dozier, who died last week at 81. 

Here’s a link to the whole show; the playlist follows.
