The Music and Memories of February 18

The Headlines:

2007-  “I’m A Survivor!” Six years after starting the sitcom, “Reba” airs for the last time on the CW.  The show originally aired on the WB television network as a ratings winner.  There were many stories as to why the popular show ended.  The most common is that the CW takes over WB and reports that the “Reba” show doesn’t fit their new target demo.  The show becomes a hit in syndication on the Lifetime Television network.

1988- Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner perform together for the first time since their 1974 breakup, while taping an episode of the “Dolly” television show.  Dolly worked with Porter Wagoner on his television show while he managed her early recordings and career.   Dolly wrote the hit “I Will Always Love You” as a parting message to Porter as she launched her solo career.

1969- Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan record “Girl From The North Country” at the Columbia Studio in Nashville for Dylan’s “Nashville Skyline” album.  The song is not a commercial radio hit, but is a fan favorite.

The #1 Hits:

1995- My Kind Of Girl- Collin Raye

1989- Big Wheels In The Moonlight- Dan Seals

1984- Don’t Cheat In Our Hometown- Ricky Skaggs

1978- Don’t Break The Heart That Loves You- Margo Smith

1967- Where Does The Good Times Go- Buck Owens

Birthdays:

Juice Newton, 1952.  The “Queen Of Hearts” goes Country with crossover hits like “Angel Of The Morning” and “The Sweetest Thing (I’ve Ever Known).”  In 1985, her pop success fizzles out and she concentrates on Country.  Juice heads back to Number One with the recordings “You Make Me Want To Make You Mine” and “Both To Each Other (Friends and Lovers),” a hit with Eddie Rabbitt.
