Featured music is from “Doc” Mehl’s CDs Asphalt Cowboy, I’d Rather Be… and
Nominated by the Western Music Association: 2013 Poetry CD of the Year The Great Divide.
Hailing from Westminster, CO, Al “Doc” Mehl calls in to chat with Julie and Bobbi Jean about his recent 2 week trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon ( totally off the grid, star lit night skies, campfires…you get the idea!) He shares the back stories behind each of the tracks played from all 3 of his CDs, including 2 from his newly Western Music Association nominated 2013 Poetry CD Of The Year, The Great Divide.
We are privileged to hear a poem he wrote for the Colorado Theraputic Riding Center, titled I Am…this special piece is not yet on a CD.
Tune in to hear sparkling conversation, great music and original poetry:
*Julie asks a fun trivia question about glue sticks – she returns to teaching this week
*Doc tells us about his recent trip boating on the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon
*When and how he became interested in cowboy poetry and the back story of his first poem
*What is “cowboy poetry”
*Who inspired “Dancing With Doris”
*What’s the story behind Brand New Leather and Happy Trail Mix? Both songs made us laugh and tap our toes!
