Roots and Rhythms
Wednesday March 14th, 2018 with Rompin' Renny
Three brothers (two of whom were identical twins) with rocking harmonies and a wild stage act, they were the hottest band to play the Vegas Strip. Stars of stage, screen and television, THE TRENIERS are the best band you've probably never heard of.

Howdy do kind listeners. A great band tonight. The Treniers. Nest time someone tells you that the Jackson Brothers were the best family band you can school them.

I wish I had some Hadacol for my coffee right about now.

From Wikipedia: Hadacol was a patent medicine marketed as a vitamin supplement. Its principal attraction, however, was that it contained 12 percent alcohol (listed on the tonic bottle's label as a "preservative"), which made it quite popular in the dry counties of the southern United States.

I should have been more patient! You explained hadacol last break.

8:18 PM, March 14th, 2018
Renny G (host)
Yeah but I got the percentage alcohol content wrong.

It must be responsible for some crazy nights. Jerry Lee Lewis has a song called Hadacol Boogie.

Renny G (host)
There's a few Hadacol songs, including one by Prof.Longhair.

We should plan a Hadacol party!

Renny G (host)
Playing this one for you Ian. Speak of the devil....It's a Professor Longhair song.
