Here's an interesting bit of trivia- - - - -"C.W. McCall", is the stage name of William Fries, the guy who performs "Wolf Creek Pass", "Convoy", and a whole bunch of other classic trucking songs, is one of the two people who are the driving force behind "Steamroller"! "C.W." stands for country/western, and he picked "McCall" from the name of a magazine at the checkout line at a grocery store! The other guy behind Steamroller is Chip Davis, who was also part of the writing/singing collaboration that produced the "trucker" persona of C.W. McCall. "Wolf Creek Pass" is on of my favorites!

We played some Steamroller music this morning also. I had always heard that Chip Davis was the main guy behind a lot of their arrangements.

Beautiful music listened to by a very rigid music selector. For years the shop radio was on WRR 101.1 City of Dallas owned classical music station. Removed the knobs and cut off the shafts so the selection was my music or silence. Now everyone has the hearing aid like ear plugs and don't hear bearings going bad in the equipment AND I have broadened my selection. People I had never heard of I now enjoy. A few discoveries: Me and Bobby McGee by Pink, House of the Rising Sun by The Animals, and anything on the Pan Flute. Of course I have to clear my auditory passages with Amira Willighagen's Nella Fantasia, Gabriellas Song, Amazing Grace, or ANYTHING this young super star sings.
