One of the real treats my family used to enjoy was going to the Emery Theater in Cincinnati (a fantastic venue) to listen to live radio recordings of Riders in the Sky, a country and western swing musical group who also did a lot of offbeat comedy. Their half-hour radio show which featured music and a running serial adventure was a public radio staple back in our household during the early 90's, and the wife and I loaded up our girls more than a few times and took them to the tapings. They loved it I hope, because I sure did.
For my birthday my beauties have gotten tickets for the whole family to see Riders in the Sky in concert this evening. It's going to be fantastic, a real blast and something we can all enjoy. I'm really looking forward to it.
Here's a dandy sample of what the Riders do.
