Listen if you can: The Twin Cities’ best radio station by far is KFAI radio. Its drive-time lineup of rhythm and blues, blues, soul, and American pop shows provides a daily education in American music if not America. Typical of its inspired programming is its incredible 15-hour Hank Williams (Senior) special beginning at 6:00 am tomorrow morning. You can listen to the station FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD through its live streaming over the Internet. Here’s the station’s announcement of the event:
“Hang on to Your (Cowboy) Hats and Get Ready for a 15-Hour Hank Williams Tribute! This New Years Day marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of the legendary Hank Williams. To commemorate this event, Good & Country [KFAI’s weekly country show] will present a 15-hour special on Saturday December 28, 2002 from 6:00 AM-9:00 PM. It will include studio recordings, alternate takes, radio appearances, the complete audio from the Kate Smith Evening Hour shows (March and April 1952) when he was a guest, an exclusive interview with his steel guitar player–Don Helms, insights into Hank Williams in song and story by Hank Williams, Jr., and interview excerpts from those who knew and worked with him during those heady days when Hank Williams turned honky tonk music into a fine art and personalized country music as we know it today. Hope you will tune in and log on.”
