Friday Factory Tune: Busted

Johnny Cash and Ray Charles anticipated S&P’s critique of U.S. debt many years ago. “Busted” is an allegory!

The Johnny Cash Show broadcast so many good performances and guest artists. It’s hard to beat “Sunday Morning Coming Down.” And Derek the Dominoes! With Carl Perkins, even.

The spiritual, “Were You There?,” performed in 1962 by Johnny Cash with the Mother Maybelle and the Carter sisters is, of course, a song of Good Friday and Easter.

And let’s close with June Carter Cash in 2002 performing with Johnny, “Keep on the Sunny Side of Life.” Beautiful retrospective footage.
