Songs & Stories With Kinky Friedman on Sat, May 13, 2017

Kinky Friedman has a well-deserved reputation as the prankster of the Lone Star State’s singer/songwriter community. Anyone who has dug deep into Friedman’s catalog knows his jokes are smarter than they might seem on the surface. Who else could have written a country song about the Holocaust (“Ride ‘Em Jewboy”), or about a human being kept in a cage as part of a circus (“Wild Man from Borneo”)? Outrageous and irreverent but nearly always thought-provoking, Kinky Friedman has been hailed the Frank Zappa of country music.
