Listening to Johnny Cash Live at Fulsom Prison may seem an odd celebration of Memorial Day, but it is rather perfect for me. I first became acquainted with Johnny Cash by listening to him on 8 track tapes at my mom's parents' house four decades ago, and watching his TV shows way back in the day. Country music wasn't popular in the area, but I used to listen to him for hours; I think it drove Grandma slightly crazy at times. As Grandpa L was a WWII veteran, listening to Cash's album today is both a treat and a tribute.
