This week on the show, industry software news, a gear review for you horn players, an offer of full master multitrack session files from a Trent Reznor (NIN - Nine Inch Nails) with permission to do just about anything you want with them and an unexpected dangerous donkey update!
Country music legend and pioneer of the "Bakersfield Sound," Buck Owens is dead at 76. His hit songs include: Act Naturally and I've Got a Tiger by the Tail. Owens also released his own Bridge Over Troubled Water album that included two other Paul Simon songs, as well as particularly strong and moving versions of Bob Dylan's Love Minus Zero, No Limit and Donovan's Catch the Wind. Owens was Nashville outlaw that inspired the same in future artists like Dwight Yokum.
