Come along on My Big O Journey to experience Owensboro, Kentucky in the 1970s. A small river town on the banks of the Ohio, the Big O could ass for anyone’s hometown. The town’s mystical draw and charm pulls you in, almost as if the hills are alive with the sound of Bluegrass music. To the tune of “These are a few of my favorite things,” this little ditty about Owensboro is best sung with a tinge of attitude and a phantom banjo. And I’ll sing once more: Big Dipper burgers and mutton with burgoo Shiny Red Goose shoes and Farrah’s new hair-do The Charley’s Chip truck, Windy Hollow soul food These were the things that we liked to do Wax Works recordings with eight tracks and albums Movies at Malco and Lincoln Mall’s fountain Lunch box with thermos, the OTS bus These were the things that were special to us. Rash Stadium football, a fat Cabbage Patch doll Dizzy Dave’s straight jeans, Camaros and mood rings Regattas on river, and Dipper Dan’s cream Add Miller’s Lake to my favorite things Izod sweaters! Stick pin letters! Disco dancing fad I simply remember what Owensboro has And then I just feel…so glad!show more
