Best radio interview ever

Editor, the Advocate:
In six decades of doing live radio interviews, my all-time favorite is a quick conversation with Don Gay when he was competing at the Victoria Community Center.
I remember saying, "Don, you recently won your 8th all-round cowboy title, which tied you with the legendary Jim Shoulders. How do you feel about that?"
He flashed that boyish grin and replied, "Well, it's great, until I go home and Momma says 'Donnie, please take out the garbage.'"
You can't write an interview like that.
Don Gay is bringing his Championship Bull Riding Tour to Hallettsville this coming weekend. Give him my regards.
