Streaming Note: Due to music copyright laws, VPR cannot stream tonight's program featuring several songs by George Jones.  Instead, you will hear Joel's show from August 10, 2010, "My Place Saturday Night Dance Party"  The playlist for this program is here.

On April 26, 2013 country music singer George Jones died in Nashville at age eighty-one. With 168 nationally charted singles between 1955 and 2011, no other artist has had more country hits than the singer nicknamed "The Possum".

Considered by many to be the greatest voice in country music, George Jones has been honored by induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award.

This week Joel Najman's My Place celebrates the life in music of George Jones with an hour of his biggest hits and most memorable recordings.
