Rural Ledge-ucation #94: Country

With Friday's show being nothing but songs about rock 'n' roll, I attempted to do a similar thing today with country. A companion piece of sorts. Unfortunately, my library didn't completely accommodate this idea. Yes, there were a ton of songs with the word "country" in it, but not that many were really about country music.
That means today's show is not only a bit shorter than usual, but also contains some songs that don't completely fit the format. This doesn't mean it's not a worthy show to check out. It's actually one of the most varied Sunday morning shows in a long, long time, with tracks that date all the way back to the 20's, along with some current alt-rock, Americana, and singer-songwriter tracks.
This show can be found in the usual online spots, or...
