111: Country Goes Cassette



In this episode, we welcome guest panelist Tom Snyder as we cover country music from the 1980s and into the 1990s - an era that would welcome new trends, slicker production, and early forays into music video. From Urban Cowboy to Curb Records and Hank Jr. to The Judds we discuss the highs and lows of a genre that further cemented its place in the mainstream. Of course, we also attempt to tackle the 800-pound gorilla that is Garth Brooks.
