    I dont want to sound like a Jerry basher, but lets be clear, he not only married a 15 year old, it was his 15 year old cousin, but it was even worse than that if it can be so. It was his 3rd marriage !!!!.. The guy was not well. It just cant get worse than that...

    oh wait, forgive me for making Jerry look good, his 3rd marriage was not to his 15 year old cousin, .. she was 13 years old !!

    Tonight's Episode Four is ... I Can't Stop Loving You (1953-1963). "Travel to Memphis where Sun Studio artists Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash usher in the era of Rockabilly". And then we get a 3-day break before Episodes 5 -8 are on next Sunday to Wednesday. Really looking to tonight, as that's about the exact time, as an 8 year old, that I started listening to music, and Elvis and Johnny were two of my early favourites.

    a tangential trivia question: in Ep 2 we're reintroduced to good old Goat Glands Brinkley, this time with his Mexican radio station XERA.

    So who was the famed disc jockey who starred on XERB out of Tijuana? We used to listen to him in Washington in the '60s.

    Wolfman Jack, perhaps?

    the company was in Del Rio, but the radio transmitter was across the river in Villa Acuņa, hence the call letters starting with X
