Great show, John! I'm still listening to your excellent music at 11:45pm!
Here are my show notes for tonight. Give you all a little peek behind the scenes. As you can see, some things we get to, some things fall by the wayside as the show sometimes takes another direction...
Check out the great shows for the rest of October! bp
Racin & Rocking with Draglist.com is produced and broadcast by the
Zeus Radio Network for Racers Reunion Radio!
Tonight! Ray Godman and Preston Davis of the legendary Tennessee Bo-Weevil
fuel dragster and funny car fame stop by for a visit. Ray's cars terrorized
the southern United States (and elsewhere) from 1954 to 1979 with Preston as
the head shoe.
And Joe Morrison, who just won his 6th North East Timing Association Comp
Division event victory in the 2011 NETO season, will describe nostalgia
