Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash and Trumpy Bear

It was a fine spring day in May of 1988 when country music (and just plain music in general) legend stopped by the White House to pay his respects to President Ronald Reagan - on their agenda: drugs.

Not the taking, as Johnny points out in this conversation, but rather the stopping thereof.

And that’s only one of the few small conversation nuggets you’ll find in our presidential appearance this week.

Johnny didn’t come alone - no, he brought June Carter Cash with him as well. But what’s surprising is who WASN’T able to make the photo session. Be sure to listen to the podcast to find out who could have made photo history with Reagan in the White House.

Also in this episode, Harmon and I continue our feature “Trump in the Amazon” where we read Amazon reviews and questions about Donald Trump products on Amazon. Up this time - and we swear we didn’t know this was “a thing” before we did this - the Trumpy Bear!

Episode 4 - Don't Forget Your Ashtray

President Nixon welcomes Johnny and June Carter Cash, along with a few members from the band, into the Oval Office and showers them with gifts. He also takes the time to praise Johnny's music and shows off a "cool" painting by his daughter, Julie. 

Controversy erupts when Nixon mentions Glen Campell - what exactly is the President hiding from the public?
