    I was able to buy one, three cd set of The Legends on Amazon. It was Merle, The Oaks, and Willie. I really enjoyed it and I WANT all the rest.

    I never knew that I loved George so much until he passed away.
    watched his funeral on TV and then read his book in 4 days. Unbelievable(I live to tell) I think it was. I am forgetful short memory loss. I love all older country singers. I want to read it again if my daughter ever brings it back. Since I was about 7 yrs. old I have started with country music. I was so star struck by him I talked so much on facebook about it that utube sent me a whole series of his and Tammies videos. Then I was really stuck. Then they sent me more other ones. I am really set not.
    when I get tired of watching TV I come in here and play my videos. I am sorry I bended your ear too long. Ruth Polacek

    Helen, Ray sang Bill’s song, ‘City Lights’ and it became a hit that propelled Bill’s career. It’s a great story!

    Helen Jetzelsburger, I think he may have been referring to Ray Price who recently passed away. I sure would like to see these shows again, nothing like our favorites then or now. They are still special to me and I enjoy hearing all of them today.

    I’ve got to agree with Carolyn Bowen, Bill We don’t have anyone who can sing em like the old Gang and you. The songs that reach in grab the heart strings and jerk on them,or tell a love story like you all did. God Bless you Bill and all those who have gone on too make Heaven a brighter place.

    Being fairly new to Sirius XM I would vote to bring back the shows as well. I really enjoyed all the interviews on New Years

    I grew up listening to you, George Jones, Ray Price, Kitty Wells, Loretta Lynn, and all the legends of Country Music. If I can get it to come in clear, I listen to the Classic Country Music radio station over any of the ones that play “today’s” Country. Which in my opinion, except for a choice few artists, is just bad Rock n Roll with a steel guitar added.

    Mr. Anderson is talking about the passing of another Country Music Legend, Ray Price (The Cherokee Cowboy) just before the end of 2013.

    I sure do wish that I could have heard that show. I love you, George Jones, and just about all of the older singers who have passed on. Maybe one of these days they will play it on tv where just the regular joes like me can get to see it. I do not have the pleasure of having Sirius to listen to. I am so glad that you got to hear it again and had fun listening to it and remembering back the good old days. God bless you and yours in all that you do.

    I signed up for XM radio before its merger with Sirius and loved that I could hear Bill’s show for 24 hours solid, one day each week, which was helpful, given my own busy schedule. Now, it’s gone or rarely heard….and only then in reruns. Bill’s show was quality programming and provided a much needed public service, in recording the memories of so many greats, prior to their passing. Who’s gonna fill Bill’s shoes, in this regard? Apparently, at Sirius/XM, no one cares.

    I so dislike the so called country music of today. It’s so rockish and loud.

    The last line says “Thanks one last time for changing my life, Ray”. Did I miss something, or am I too dense to read it correctly?

    I would have cried, too! I wish they would put all of his memorial service on a disc. I wasn’t able to listen to it.

    I agree with you Bill it is good to hear some of the people who have gone and it brings back memories of the times when country music was country music not the music they play today. The newer talent coming up is not singing the real songs like you sang and many of the others. Those are the songs we loved Bill and also will look for. Thank God he gave us singers such as yourself, Boxcar Willlie, Hank Locklin, Marty Robbins, Loretta Lynn, Jimmie Dickens, Connie Smith. etc…that’s county! My kinda country music. Happy New Year Bill and God Bless.

      You are so right Carolyn! That really was Country Music, I have loved Classic Country since I was a very young girl. And still listen to it over Modern Country Music every chance I get!
