FRIDAY, MAY 24th - 12:00-1:00pm  -- FIRST  HOUR 

GUEST:  CHARLIE DANIELS

Information: The incredibly talented Southern Rock pioneer, CHARLIE DANIELS, joins Tom Lounges in talking about the 40th Anniversary of his "Million Mile Reflections" album and his "Devil Went Down To Georgia" single, the first fiddle-driven song to ever top the rock charts.   

Along with hearing that landmark song and hearing Charlie tell the story behind it, listeners also hear other vintage Charlie songs from over the decades, and even a few of his new songs.   That's right, at 82 years old, Charlie still has the CDB out on the road performing over 100 dates a year, but still finds time to write and record new music.  His latest album -- "Songs In The Key of 'E' -- was recorded and released in 2018 with some old friends who have come to call their group THE BEAU WEEVILS.
Charlie even touches on the procees of having written his 60-year spanning memoire --"Don't Look At The Empty Seats" -- and his newest book of life lessons, "Let's All Make Life Count."
