I will start off this final episode with a few more Real River songs- for Rivers that geographically and specifically do exist. Then a couple regarding one of America's most famous Rivers, at least in song, that we have been misspelling for well over a century! I have a behind-the-scenes story about doing a show one time, and Engineer Ken Stanley refusing to play a song that I wanted to come on next. So while one song was playing, and running down with each second, I was out of the studio insisting the next tune was the way to go, all the while listening to that playing song tick away, knowing I had only seconds to literally run to be back on the microphone. Ken and I have laughed about that incident for years now. Particularly in light of what he did next, lol! I will play that problematic song, and also my vindication for insisting that it was a damn good one. In between, the most aptly named Artist of the entire Series. Ending this Theme in an almost Full Circle way, I have a song that refers back to the very first song I played to open it! Hope you enjoyed the Trip. Be Kind To Your Rivers!
