"We were next of kin to the mandolin." One of many tracks on which birthday boy Dean Webb played during his 30 or so years with The Dillards. He passed away last June 30th at the age of 81 and Rodney is the lone remaining original band member.

Gram Parsons - Ooh Las Vegas
Gram Parsons Ooh Las Vegas
GP / Grievous Angel Reprise 1990
This one is going out to Casey, a longtime supporter of KDHX and a big Gram Parsons fan. Barry Tashian was one of Gram's bandmates when this was recorded and he wrote (uncredited) one of the verses, the one beginning, "First time I lose I drink whiskey." James Burton told Barry that was the hottest verse in the song and that was credit enough for Barry.

Sorry, Stella Earthwork 2012
Going out to James, who loves this song but respectfully only requests it once a year or so. Musical accompaniment for "Arsenic and Old Lace" I'd say.
