Podcast: Steel Belted Radio – April 7, 2016

Tonight a couple of exciting shows to discuss, including a stellar show tonight featuring Corin Raymond & Jonathan Byrd! Yesterday the music world lost a true giant when Merle Haggard left us on his 79th birthday. Merle’s influence and legacy can be found just about everywhere, so a tribute is in order. We also paid tribute to the late John Bottomley who lost his struggle with depression five years ago yesterday, but is loved and remembered still.
