Good Ol' Boys
Youtube is just brilliant for finding things you didn't realise you were looking for. Case in point, the Dukes. A childhood memory of mine, the family watching this classic TV show together. Pure Americana! The theme song's guitar strum is timeless.
Looking at Daisy now, the outfits were rather saucy (which perhaps explains why the entire family watched it), but back then I didn't notice how saucy she actually was. Though I did favour little denim shorts, so maybe subconsciously she was having an effect on my dress sense.
My father enjoys his country music (actually I think it's the only genre he listens to), even streaming in to US radio stations. He crafts and builds in his workshop at home listening to country folk songs, and now when I find I need a bit of relaxation I tune into a little country music myself.
Did you have a crush on Bo or Luke Duke? I know in CHiPs, my crush was the blond cop.
