CAMPFIRE CAFE FEATURED GUEST
12:00 -1:00pm (CST)
Suzy Bogguss didn’t set out to craft a Merle Haggard tribute record. Some might call that serendipity; she just calls it LUCKY.
“Merle Haggard is a heck of a storyteller,” says Suzy. “When I hear his songs, I feel like I’m listening in on someone’s life.” On her album, LUCKY, a collection of songs all written by Haggard, Suzy does more than just listen—the CMA, ACM and Grammy Award-winning singer makes the country rebel’s compositions her own.
With LUCKY released on Suzy’s own label Loyal Dutchess, the singer comes full circle, returning yet again to her early inspiration, Haggard—Suzy’s Somewhere Between was titled after a Hag cut. LUCKY is remarkable in its freshness. Its acoustic-based arrangements, while sparse, crackle with vibrancy. Each song is driven by the perfect marriage of Suzy’s delicate voice and the adventurous, yet tasteful, playing of the band along with an A-team of singer-songwriters, including Jessi Alexander, Matraca Berg, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Joe Diffie, Gretchen Peters and Jon Randall Stewart, to lend background vocals—she cut a dozen Haggard tunes. Tune into CAMPFIRE CAFE to hear Suzy share the backstories and the music from this remarkable album!

JANUARY 7, 2021 THE WRITER'S BLOCK RADIO SHOW
SHOW #288 A CONVERSATION WITH MARK EDWARD LANGLEY
"DEATH WAITS IN THE DARK is a must read, get comfortable on the edge of your seat, and remind yourself to breathe regularly!. Oh, and don't read it before bedtime!" - Bobbi Jean Bell
Join hosts Jim Christina and Bobbi Jean Bell and their guest, author Mark Edward Langley for an engaging and entertaining conversation about DEATH WAITS IN THE DARK, the second book of Mark's Arthur Nakai Series.
ABOUT MARK EDWARD LANGLEY
"I have always felt a kinship with the American Southwest from an early age. When I was twelve years old, my parents took me out there, and my heart and soul were touched by the beauty of its landscape and its people.
It was when I took a two week trip into the West of my youth in my thirties, that I realized I had found my true home. I drove from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Glacier National Park, Montana, traveling through the beautiful and iconic scenery that was to become the majestic backdrop for my first novel, Path of the Dead. Upon revisiting New Mexico, doing research for my second novel, Death Waits in the Dark, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet with a few Navajo people and have an open and respectful conversation. The connection I feel with the land and its people played an intrical part in why I fell in love with the land and its beauty. I knew i had to create a world of characters that would one day inhabit it and would possibly be a pathway to bring awareness to a culture that I cared about.
I wanted to honor the Native people of the Southwest and felt that Arthur Nakai was the best way to do that. I wanted to expose readers to the Navajo culture in a way that would educate them and well as expose them to the things they are dealing with on a daily basis." - quote provided by the Mark Edward Langley
