Classic Hour

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

It’s the Wes Hurlford and the Westerners Winson Pork Chops Hour from Nashville, Tennessee, as Wes and his band rip through their hits like ‘Planet Earth’, ‘One Legged Hop’, ‘Old Lady’ and of course ‘There’s A Midget’. Good times.

The BSP Classic Hour is from September 2002. Vernon Dozier says that when his wife stopped dying her hair blonde, their sex life went downhill. She just wanted to be herself. Vernon says that when a woman says that you might as well throw your penis out the window while you’re driving down the street.

    Great show! “Turkey Man” is now one of your greatest hits, along with “Go With It” and “There Goes a Midget.”

    The lounge-style smattering of applause makes me laugh every time.

    I love when the music track ended and the singer said “I..I had another verse to go but the-” and Wes says “You want to finish it?” The singer replies, “NO NO”

    It was so funny I hope someone is transcribing the lyrics..

      Oh I forgot to mention, if you listen to the pre-show, you’ll get a bunch of attempts at a Kenny Slag. A Kenny Slag show was close to taking off before Phil switched to a Wes Hurlford hour.

      I’m surprised Deane didn’t follow him back to Nashville and try to butt in.

    I have listened to babies crying and screaming, cat fights in the dead of night, fingernails on chalk boards, my mother in law, but now I can say I have heard it all.

    Where to begin? “What’s that in your hand…doesn’t look like my gland?!” One of Wes’s many classic lyrics. More Wes Hurlford and the Westeners, please! Thanks Phil.

    I love Momma. She’s the one who turned me into an alcoholic.
