“Hello everyone, and howdy!
Welcome to Adventures in Good Country Music…”
In the spirit of P.D.Q. Bach,
Victor Borge, and Anna Russell, Mountain Stage used to include a feature
called “Adventures in Good Country Music.” It’s a very funny spoof on the
beloved classical music radio program “Adventures in Good Music” with Karl Haas.
Only in this case, the host is Karl “Hoss” Cartwright and the featured
composers include George Frederic Jones and Wolfgang Amadeus Haggard.
Here are two episodes to
enjoy – be sure to come back for more Adventures in Good Country Music next
They're Going to Put Me in the Oratorio
