I have been listening to a lot of Jimmy Webb and a lot of that is GC singing Jimmy Webb. Both are amazing. Some of the songs are lyrically simple but so effective like "Galveston" and "Wichita Lineman." Others are crypic and poetic like "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" or even "Susie."But, all of them are complex and unique musically. Glen seems to connect with every one of them that he sings. I really love his take on "Moon" and "If You're Still Within the Sound of My Voice."

I am posting a link to the Kansas City Star review of Jimmy Webb's show at Knuckleheads in KC, Friday night. Wish I'd been there to hear his stories about all of those great songs and performers, (including Glen Campbell).

I found the article linked below somewhere today, but I may have found it by Google rather than Fan Forum. It's long, prints to about 7 or 8 pages, but it is a delightful interview with Jimmy Webb, with his recollections about the CMA evening with Glen on stage, and the guitar; and touring with Alzheimer's. Also a lot about Jimmy's composing, performing, and growth in his music. It's just a great read. If it's already on the Forum, just scratch it.

About "Wichita Lineman" AWARD - for most play or so on... given to Glen Campbell 1999!

Was THIS for most play song in "the Century" on the big American Country Radio Station!

What is THE RIGHT STORY???
NOT 100% shure?


This is what I understand (or where can I find MORE INFO):

In September 1999, 3 of Glen C. songs were honoured by ASCAP as the most played country songs of all time on Country radio stations, “Wichita lineman” as number #no. 1., “Galveston” on place #no. 11.

I am most appreciative to have become part of this Glen Campbell website, to be able to access a collection of these many interesting articles, etc. Jimmy Webb has created a wonderful body of work, and his long relationship with Glen has benefited both. His friendship and respect for Glen is so obviously warm.

Jimmy Webb never fails to mention Glen in his interviews.

Here's another interesting one:

Hi all!

The Big National Danish Radio P4, DENMARK, my area, plays the next 5 days, started out this morning with "Phoenix" with Glen Campbell and play rest of the week a Jimmy Webb song.

This is because MY Jimmy Webb concert I had 18th February 2011 up at world famous artmuseum LOUISIANA in Humlebaek, north of Copenhagen.

Air between danish morning time 8:10 to 8:20 I guess - 8:10 a.m. to 8:20 a.m.

In UK they are 1 hour behind!

In US around 8-11 hour behind I guess - so maybe late evening or night you are able to hear.

Tomorrow 10th January will be "Wichita lineman" also with G.C. Wednesday 11th will be "Galveston" with again G.C. Thursday 12th it will be "MacArthur Park", disco vers. with Donna Summer and ends Friday 13th with again G.C. singing "Where`s the playground Susie?".

Danish Radio P4 internet radio hear!
