Bob Manning & The Honky Tonk Roadshow in 2013!!
Well Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, Friends & Neighbors... 2013 has arrived and a mess of great stuff is fixin' to happen!!
Our schedule for the year is starting to take shape, and we're startin' to map out the "Honky Tonk Trail" for the year! We are even scheduled to take the show to Scotland and Ireland this Spring!! Yup, we're takin' our brand of Honky Tonk across the pond... needless to say, we are excited!!
Our New Album All Night Radio is scheduled for an early March release and is currently available for pre-orders. We're VERY excited about this Album Project, as it is a tribute of sorts to the "Golden Era of AM Radio" and all the growin' up some of us did to the "Car Radio"... Y'all know what I mean! Here's a bit of the Liner Notes from the Album:
"For those of you who are lucky enough to remember the golden era of AM Radio, and the “All Night Radio” format… this album is dedicated to you, and the great Country Radio DJ’s of the past & present. I pray we never forget those radio personalities that became a part of our lives, our memories and our national fabric.
As a young man, I never felt more free and alive than when I was on the road, late at night, face bathed in the amber glow of dash-lights, lungs filled with fresh cool air from an open window & that AM Radio spilling out great Country Music through crackly speakers … delivered in style, by an entertainer, a personality, a believer, a fan, a star maker, a DJ.
This album is not so much an effort to recreate that sound, or that format on disc, but to simply thank all of those personalities for their contribution to my catalog of memories and songs… and maybe jog a memory or two, in those that grew up listening to the radio.
Dedicated To: Bill Mack, Morgan Choate, Eddie Stubbs, Larry Scott, Ralph Emery, Grant Turner, Tracy Pitcox, Joe Bielinski, Willie Nelson, Bill Anderson, Big John Trimble, Charlie Douglas, Blair Garner, H. David Allen… Plus all those that inspired all of you!!" We Hope You Enjoy It!!
We hope to see ya out on the trail this year, and we wish you all the blessing you can bare...
Keep On Honky Tonkin'!!!
