    Anyway, I rarely get serviced by the major labels, and I don't listen to the radio stations that kowtow to the major labels, so I don't feel I have much context in which to wrestle with the important national security problem of whether Carrie Underw...

    B.J. Thomas

    I was a huge Hank Williams fan as a child, so much so that my parents swear my first words were "round and round" as I pointed to the phonograph while "Your Cheatin' Heart" poured out of it. So as a teenager, I flipped the first time I heard B.J. Th...
