Hey Ian. I broke down and decided that I'm going to play a rockabilly (GASP!) track.

12:08 PM, August 4th, 2018
Ron Armstrong
Great show. It is so good to hear songs that are never played on any other show including The Back 40 when Ron is hosting. FYI there is a Rockabilly even on today and tomorrow in Rigaud. Rockabilly music and hot rods.

Renny G (host)
I know. Unfortunately I don't drive and I'm so broke I can't even change my mind. Krystal Jyl & The Jacks are playing. I saw them earlier this year and I'm considering crawling to Rigaud to see them again.
