Them Poems and other thangs

My brother the trout suggested I check out Mason Williams, and so I did. Here he is on Johnny Cash's tv show back in the 60s. And here he is years later, playing Riding the Low Moon.

Williams gained fame back in the 60s for a tune known as Classical Gas. It doesn't really turn my crank, but it was popular. He's also been a tv comedy writer on The Smothers Brothers show, Glen Campbell's show, and even Saturday Night Live.
