Today in Music History - January 18, 1947, “Rainbow at Midnight” by Ernest Tubb tops the Billboard Country chart

(Technically, it was the “Billboard Most Played Juke Box Folk Records” chart, which is a bit much this morning.)

I have always felt I’m not paying enough attention to country music - aside from the obvious things - when I make these blog posts. This year I hope to remedy that, because frankly (after listening to this song) I’ve been missing out on some greatness. I mean, this one song here sums up the post-WW2 feeling in the US like nothing I’ve ever heard…. And I think Randy Travis was listening to Ernest Tubbs at some point in his formative years.



  • Sunny Afternoon
  • The Kinks
  • Rainbow Theatre, London - 12/24/77

From a live BBC radio broadcast. They started out a little rough, this is the fifth song into the set, it gets way better (they have a horn section! And backup singers!) but they also got a little too loose and the songs got too long and the files got too big so tumblr won’t let me post them.

But if you can find Juke Box Music from London’s Rainbow Theatre on Christmas Eve, 1977, lend your ears to it.

Rules: You can tell a lot about a person by the music they listen to. Put your music on shuffle, list the first 10 songs and tag 10 people.

I just went to Watermelon Music with my Dad and I tried out an accordion. I turned out to be a prodigy (to my father) and now he has become quite serious on buying an accordion.It was pretty sickkkkkkkk The accordion was sadly $1000+ which is such a tragedy since it has been on the market for six year.

For weeks the guy has come in, put four or five bucks in the juke box, ate waffles and left without saying a word- even though he deliberately sits behind Derek every single time, that is, until one afternoon when absolutely everything changes

“Did you really just use my dollar to play ‘Let It Go’?”
