  1. RE: The TNTs – Chuck worked a couple of summers for my dad on the ranch, he was 15-16 years old; had his electric guitar out in the bunkhouse and was always practicing. The horses were curious about the sounds and would line up at the fence and listen.

  2. The Time and The Talk (both on your list) are actually one in the same–when they went to record, they found there was a band in the Midwest called The Time. One former member, Wylie Gustafson, more recently did the “Yahoo yodel” that most everyone has heard.
