Michael Brewer of the famed duo, Brewer and Shipley talks to Iris Harrison of KGON


13:30 minutes Michael Brewer of the famed duo, Brewer and Shipley talks to Iris Harrison of KGON

Since my first job at KFMY in Eugene, Oregon, I've been proudly playing "One Toke Over the Line," an anthem for the time it was written and still very appropriate in today's world. It's amazing that 40 years later it still has that punch. Michael talks about what happened after the song was released and climbed up the charts, being on Nixon's enemies list, what Spiro Agnew had to say about them, having the song done as a "modern spiritual" on the Lawrence Welk show, and the years between which find the duo still performing. Michael also tells about how much fun it was to perform at one of Levon Helm's "Midnight Rambles" at his farm in New York. Celebrate this song, this wonderful artist, and "Happy 4-20" to everyone!!
