    Ranch Radio is all about inclusion, diversity, equality and social justice, which is why we dedicate today's tune to the thousands of feminists who visit our channel each day. The song is Adam, recorded by Wayne Raney in 1953. Other tunes on Ranch Radio by Raney are Lost John Boogie and Gone With The Wind This Morning.  THE WESTERNER https://thewesterner.blogspot.com/

    Here's a tune, It's Nothing To Me, written by Leon Payne under the pseudonym Pat Patterson and first recorded by Loy Clingman in 1957. Red Kirk put it out in 1959 and the Reeves released his version in 1961. The Coasters also recorded it that year and there were later versions by Sanford Clark and others. But the Reeves version is the one I heard first and believe I like the best. We have 10 tunes by Jim Reeves posted at Ranch Radio. Some examples would be Bimbo, Yonder Comes A Sucker, and Penny Candy.

    Can Santa do the mambo? That's what Terry Fell wants to find out with his 1954 recording of We Wanna See Santa Do The Mambo. Artist Biography by Cub Koda Known for his one big hit, 1954's "Truck Driving Man," Terry Fell is but a footnote in country history, but an important one nonetheless. His hit literally spawned the whole truck driving saga that is still a major part of country music's lyrical pool.
