Katie Laur, Music From the Hills of Home host
My first and favorite record was Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel. It wasn’t an album. They didn’t have albums then. I remember liking the nitty gritty dirt band’s first album: will the circle be unbroken. Other than that my brain waves are too covered with green moss to be of any use.
