I was in my office one harried afternoon in early January 2012, grappling with several urgent matters and fielding one phone call after another on work-related subjects when a call came in unexpectedly from the news director at Carthage, Texas radio station KGAS. Mark Bowndn wanted to ask me some questions about my book — a topic that could not have been farther from my mind at that moment. Before I barely had a chance to collect my thoughts or clear my throat, he pushed a button and started recording an interview with me about Jim Reeves! I think the "off the cuff" interview came off rather well, Mark's questions were spot-on, and I loved how he began and ended the segment with some of Jim's best music that you seldom hear played on the radio.

Carthage, of course, is the county seat of Panola County, Texas where Jim Reeves was born and raised.
