640-1240 Conelrad: Alert today, alive tomorrow!

I remember this stuff - and I was so disappointed that Dad didn't want to build a fallout shelter in the back yard.

Today's Earworm: The Winters Brothers Band

Back in the mid-1970s, yet another album of country rock came into the WBRN studios. This was nothing out of the ordinary - southern rock was hot in those days. The Allman Brothers Band, the Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Atlanta Rhythm Section and others combined really high quality musicianship, extended jams and a country sensibility. I loved it - still do.
This album came from an obscure band called the Winters Brothers Band, and it was truly excellent. They came from Nolensville, Tenn., and I fell in love with this extended jam:

That's been running through my head for the last couple of weeks.
The band's still playing, still working hard, still jamming, 35 years later.
