We were driving to Norman this evening and listening to 104.1 FM, where they're having a 70's weekend. They played Wildfire, a song I haven't heard in like, oh, forever. Beautiful, still, and I wondered what the story was behind the song.

Well, clicking on the link will tell you what Wikipedia gave up for me so no need to quote it here. I'd known that Michael Murphy - sorry, Michael Martin Murphy, because of his small work in the movies - had been admitted to the Cowboy Hall of Fame here in Oklahoma City, and I knew, too, his cowboy song tour comes through town fairly often. He's 65 now. And if he had done nothing but Wildfire in his career, that would have been enough. Lucky for us, he decided to do more.
