The road always produces adventures.
Last year, we brought you the story of the Arkansas Girls who love Crazy Horse.
This coming weekend on Thrasher's Wheat Radio on WBKM.org we'll have an exclusive interview with Arkansas Girls who will share their remarkable roadtrip tale of attending multiple Neil Young and Crazy Horse concert's last Fall.
There are four distinct chapters of the adventure beginning in Red Rocks in August, onto Tulsa, OK in October , then Seattle, WA in November and concluding in Fairfax, VA's Patriot Center.
And it was the final stop in Fairfax where all the magic of the Arkansas Girls came together perfectly that night -- right before an audience of 10,000.
In a very, very rare moment, Neil Young stopped the concert to directly acknowledge the Arkansas Girls and to say "We love you, too." You can see this in the first two minutes below during the "Analog Time Machine" dialog and just before launching into "Cinnamon Girl".
After listening to hundreds and hundreds of Neil Young concert recordings over the years, we know that what happened that night was startling and special. We tried to recall when Neil ever spoke directly to specific audience members with anything comparable -- no other examples come to mind. Neil has called out specific audience members for rude behavior or acknowledged a shouted request. But he has never told anyone that Crazy Horse loves them too.
So tune in next weekend, Saturday February 2 at 9P EST on Thrasher's Wheat Radio on WBKM.org for our exclusive interview with the Arkansas Cowgirls. Many, many thanks Tami & Sandy. Long may you both run.
