Cripples, orphans, Mom, trucks: what's not to like?

Not sure where this jumped into my head from either. A housemate when I was a student had parents in Wyoming (they were British but his Dad was a chemistry professor at Laramie). Anyway, he had a tape of country stuff I hadn't heard before, taken from a New Year's Eve rundown on Radio KOJO. This was on it. A few years later Kenny Everett played it in his World's Worst Record Show spot - his anthology of tasteless classics - on his Capital Radio show. It was funny hearing some of the other Capital DJs arguing over whether it deserved to be in there or not. Decide for yourself.

Oh, I remember how big that one was. I thought (and still do) that it was awful. Yes, it deserves a place there. Along with those others from the 60's where auto accidents were killing girlfriends and all.

That was gross. No wonder you were attracted to it!

Said housemate is now bidding fair to become a Canadian - did you know?

Hi Gill, and sorry I missed sending you a birthday greeting over on LJ.

Yes, I did notice from Peter's LJ page that he's now a resident and intending to move on to citizenship. The boy could do worse. But see here.
