Lyle Lovett
Surprised today to find that I had neglected Lyle Lovett for this long. Now we find ourselves with a month of Sundays featuring the great Lyle Lovett on Durham Cool. A just outcome for a worthy musician. Do you remember the first time you listened to Pontiac Lyle’s first album? I do as it was the summer of my senior year of high school where I spent just about every weekend at cascadilla Creek and a place called flat Rock, reading the latest Thomas McGuane or Don Delillo. Pontiac was one of the first cassettes I listened to on my new Sony Walkman while the creek flowed on by.
