Rod receives Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame plaque from Al Dressen
On May 16, 2015, Rod was inducted into the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame. His plaque was not ready by Saturday afternoon when he was called to the stage to be officially inducted, so Al Dressen came to the KOOP studios and presented Rod with his plaque on air the following Thursday, May 21. This is the first year that deejays have been inducted.

Watch Rod on Youtube being inducted into the Texas Western Swing Hall Of Fame at the annual festival at San Marcos, TX, May 16 2015.


It's here! 40s Country Faves

For over five years I've been working on a new album. I keep saying it's my final one, magnum opus and all that, but who knows.

It has lots of friends and special guests with a few more to come. The focus is reprising 1940s country.

The latest to sign on and record for the project is Dale Watson and his Lone Stars, pictured below with me on the porch of the studio:

Hear a sample of "Candy Kisses", in which Rod harmonizes with Dale's guitar on the intro.
