On the next Fresh Air, Terry talks about a wonderful but largely forgotten chapter of music history, the singing cowboy, with Doug Green. He wrote a book on the subject, sings lead in the Western band Riders in the Sky, and is featured in Ken Burns’ country music series on PBS. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download from the App Store & Google Play.
