Best of the Book Nook: The Mile High Club by Kinky Friedman

41_zz0ojcgl._sx324_bo1_204_203_200_.jpg

Kinky Friedman made his only appearance on the program in 2000. The musician and novelist came through the area for a book signing followed by a performance at the Canal Street Tavern. The Kinkster strode into the studio wearing his signature ten gallon cowboy hat. He had an enormous unlit cigar clenched between his teeth. He was quite a sight.

He went on to give one of the most hilarious and politically incorrect interviews in the history of the program. I hope you enjoy it.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro LibraryWright Memorial Public Library, and Microsun Lamps.
