I talked with Josh Shaffer of the News and Observer the other day, and he wrote up a nice article about the show.  Aw, shucks.



Let me begin by saying I am not upset with NC State Baseball, my beloved WKNC or cruel fate herself.  That said, it has been an incredibly frustrating couple of weeks at Both Kinds Radio.  Extra innings, slow play and pre and post game broadcasting have eliminate two weeks, that on the calendar, looked like sure bets for full shows.  This has lead to some pros and cons lists being made, bourbon being angrily drunk, inquiries into other time slots and talk with other stations, regarding this show’s future.  The conclusion?  Both Kinds Radio is going to remain at it’s current time slot, on it’s current home, WKNC 88.1fm.  The benefits of being broadcast on a station that draws so much water locally and so strong with it’s tower and online presence, coupled with the limits of my personal schedule led to this decision.  I have the logo tattooed on my leg, fer Hank’s sake.


All that said, what does the rest of Wolfpack Baseball season portend?  Well, the Pack’s shortcomings on the diamond is looking like a boon to us, as their participation in the ACC Tournament (and certainly the College World Series) is looking highly unlikely.  There are two more regular season games on Sundays:


Sunday, 4/27 – Georgia Tech vs. NCSU – 1pm

Sunday, 5/4 – Coastal Carolina vs. NCSU – 1pm


With a 1pm start, it is LIKELY we can get in a full or nearly full show.  The last two weeks have shown this may not come to pass, but I remain hopeful.  After the Fourth?  No more regularly scheduled Sunday games.  A rain-out on other days could change this, but barring a tournament appearance, Both Kinds Radio is unimpeded through the Summer.  So, keep your fingers crossed and we’ll see you this Sunday at 4pm.

Glen Campbell


Glen Campbell was born in Delight, Arkansas in 1936.  His talent and love for the guitar prompted a move to Albuquerque to play with his Uncle’s band, Dick Bills and the Sandia Mountain Boys.  Glen found his way to Los Angeles, where he became a member of the legendary Wrecking Crew, arguably the greatest group of session musicians ever assembled.   As a session musician, he played on records by artists including Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Merle Haggard and the Beach Boys.  His first solo hit, 1967’s “Burning Bridges”, was followed by huge success with “Gentle on My Mind“, “By the Time I Get to Phoenix”, “I Wanna Live”, “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston“.  He enjoyed continued success in the 1970’s with TV specials and more hits like, “Rhinestone Cowboy“, “Southern Nights” and “Country Boy (You Got Your Feet in LA)”.  Glen Campbell is a multiple Grammy award winner and 2005 inductee of the Country Music Hall of Fame.





Don Gibson

Born in Shelby, North Carolina, in 1928, Don Gibson would have one of the more prolific careers as a songwriter and performer in Country Music.  Coming to Nashville in 1957, worked with Chet Atkins to produce two of his biggest hits, “Oh, Lonesome Me” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You”.  No one hit wonder, Don Gibson would chart over and over with such country standards as, “Look Who’s Blue”, “Don’t Tell Me Your Troubles”, “Lonesome Number One”, “Woman (Sensuous Woman)” and, in my humble opinion, the perfect country song, “Sea of Heartbreak”.

Don Gibson is a member of the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, The Country Music Hall of Fame and the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.  He passed away from natural causes in 2003.
