Addendum to Lonesome Lefty's Ervin Rouse post (Johnny Cash Interview by Gene Beley, 1969)

How Johnny Cash got the lyrics to "Orange Blossom Special" from its composer, Ervin Rouse....

Reading Lonesome Lefty's Ervin Rouse post, I remembered a portion from a Johnny Cash interview by Gene Beley, where Johnny told Gene about meeting Ervin Rouse and getting lyrics for "Orange Blossom Special" from him.
After some digging through my archives, I found it -- it is from a KXJZ, Sacramento, CA public radio broadcast ("Insight") aired on January 10, 2008.

For the 40th anniversary of Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison concert, Host Jeffrey Callison interviewed reporter Gene Beley who played parts of his private Johnny Cash recordings, including the aforementioned Ervin Rouse related segment.


The entire program can be downloaded or listened to at archive.org -- for your convenience, I have extracted the relevant passage and converted it to an mp3, downloadable HERE (3.27 MB).
