Mix Tape – The Radio in the Garage

mix tape

Ladies and gents, welcome to the third volume of the Coughing Bison Mix Tape Collection. If you missed the first two editions, here they are:

Vol. 1 – I Just Wanna Pump… You Up
Vol. 2 – The Songs of Fayette-Nam

This third installment is twangtastic. For as far back as I can remember, my family has always had a radio in the garage. At various points in time, the garage was full of 1950’s rock n’ roll or top 40 hits. But the most frequent melodies came from a steady stream of good ol’ country: Haggard, Twitty, Cash, and company. Here for your listening pleasure is Volume 3 – “The Radio in the Garage.” When I hear these songs, I can close my eyes and magically transport myself back to that garage on a warm, sunny day.
