‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa – This Week: ‘Rain Is A Good Thing’
We celebrated the first day of October with a salute to the liquid life that falls from the sky, as Luke Bryan puts it, "Rain Is A Good Thing". So, for our first Cultured Country for the month of October in the year 2020, Sir John brings us his version of "Rain is A Good Thing".
So, if you missed it, or just want to hear it again, push the buttons below.
My daddy spent his life lookin' up at the sky
He'd cuss kick the dust, sayin' son its way to dry
It clouds up in the city, the weather man complains
But where I come from, rain is a good thing
Rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey
Whiskey makes my baby, feel a little frisky
Back roads are boggin' up, my buddies pile up in my truck
We hunt our hunnies down, we take 'em into town
Start washin' all our worries down the drain
Rain is a good thing
"Cultured Country," listen for it Thursday mornings at 7:45 with Jim & Lisa, "The Wakeup Crew," on Kicker 102.5.

The premise is simple, country music lovers like us are generally thought of as un-cultured, so to fight this ridiculous notion and bring what we consider a little more refinement to our show, we thought having someone from jolly old England read some country music lyrics, out loud, on the radio might raise the culture bar a notch or two. Since we don't have any access to the Royals and the only Brit we know in the immediate area just happens to be Lisa's husband John, that's the way we went.
