By the dark of the moon, on the twentieth of September…
Hmmm. Doesn’t quite trip off the tongue, does it? Nevermind. Three days til the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere — for you Ozzies, it’s spring — and I’m already hearing the whining about “…it’s fall, the leaves are turning, it’s raining, it’s depressing, I hate winter, why can’t it stay warm all the time…”. My thought: finally, cooler weather!
C.W. wasn’t really a product of the CB radio craze of the ’70s, although he did mention radios a few times; in “Convoy”, of course, and that’s the song that most people remember. On the album Black Bear Road, there’s a credit for Hy-Gain equipment, and C.W. later was a spokesman for Midland radios.
Today’s additions to the archives of An American Legend are “Ratchetjaw”, a lesson in CB etiquette; and “Two-Way Lovin’”, a romantic tale of a man, a woman, and communication via the means of electromagnetic radiation :)
