My good friend, Terry Burford, who was inducted into the Disk Jockey Hall of Fame in
2001, and is now at Radio Station KZHE in Magnolia, Arkansas, does a monthly
conversation with Johnny Western about memories of country music artists. This
month's conversation was about Johnny Rodriguez.  This is a 30 minute conversation
and is available at Radio Station KZHE.  I corrected Terry after the conversation to let
him know that Johnny is booked by Carrie Reed Moore of Third Coast Talent in
Nashville area, and that I do the Official Johnny Rodriguez Music website.
I hope you all will enjoy the memories that Terry and Johnny Western have of Johnny

For those who might have missed an interview on the
Bill Cody radio show while Johnny has been in
Nashville, it is available on YouTube; titled Johnny
Rodriguez Interviewed on WSM Radio in Nashville,
Tennessee.  Mary Esther Rositas posted the
interview.  Thank you, Mary Esther
"While the Lukes, Blakes and FGLs may get the lion's share of
publicity at CMA Fest, the backbone of the festival are the veteran
artists who connect today's Nashville with its roots. Bobby Bare,
Jeannie Seely and T.G. Sheppard all turned in nostalgic sets on
the Fan Fair X concourse, with the appearance of Johnny
Rodriquez a rare treat. Although the 65-year-old Texas singer...
sported a cast on his right hand that prohibited him from playing
guitar, he was in excellent voice during a heartfelt performance on
Friday afternoon, offering hits like "Ridin' My Thumb to Mexico"
and "You Always Come Back (To Hurtin' Me)." But it was his
beautiful rendition of his 1973 Number One "That's the Way Love
Goes" that reminded fans how important Rodriguez was to
Seventies country. J.H."

Johnny was mentioned in an article in the Rolling Stones
