In the works are fans working on getting Joe on the Old Settlers Fair in September. Hope it can materialize. So many have requested his appearance there (His Home Town) Old Settlers draws over millions of people and it would sure be nice to get him there. He did two major appearances there as a teen in which time he was opening acts for Skip Ewing and Travis Tritt.

Jack Blanchard & Misty Morgan


ZOO.jpg (14433 bytes)It was the 1970’s... a hot summer day in Cincinnati.Some lucky radio listeners had won us for lunch.

They had just acquired a new young camel at The Cincinnati Zoo,and they named it Humphreyafter our hit song “Humphrey the Camel”.

The radio station ran a contest and the winners got lunch with us at the Zoo Restaurant and had pictures taken with us and Humphrey. They brought Misty and me in for the occasion.

The lunch went okay, and we got to pet a baby elephant who was sitting up and looking at us funny.Misty asked permission to take the elephant home with us. We'd have needed a super scooper.

The camel picture session didn’t go as smoothly. I started to worry went it spit at us. I wondered if he’d seen our act.

Misty was wearing a fall... a false hair extension in the back. As we stood in the blazing sun saying cheese, Humphrey started to eat Misty’s hair. There was a Code Red for a few minutes, while handlers came and got Misty and Humphrey separated.

Just another day at the zoo.

Jack Blanchard

PenJackBlanchard.jpg (6003 bytes)


We were on our way to do a national television show from the PBS studio in Pittsburgh, and then to a Nashville recording session. Sometimes life can be good.

The porter showed us to our compartment and stowed our luggage. Orlando was sliding away past our windows, so we settled down,
propped our feet on our suitcases, and waited for snow.

An official voice over the PA system: "You're invited to the dining car for the hospitality hour", Free coffee and orange juice". Misty said, "Let's live a little", and we staggered forward with the sway of the train. Passing through the club car, the train rounded a curve, and Misty sat on an elderly man's lap. His wife said, "Well, I never", and glared out the window at nothing. She failed to see the humor in it.

The best part of the dining car is watching the scenery fly by in sunset colors. Telephone poles tick away the time, and up ahead a train whistle adds to the adventure. At every road and city street, cars are lined up, waiting for us to pass by. Make way for the train! The biggest thing that moves on land!

We stayed awake most of that night wiping our breath steam from the train window, and watching the sparkling towns and moonlit woodlands fall away behind us.

Washington DC was having a brisk morning as we left our luxury train and boarded a coach bound for Pittsburgh, which wove slowly through the gray land Appalachia. There were untidy traces of leftover winter, dingy crusts of snow and slush.

Smoky air left its film on town and country alike, dulling the colors. Trees, houses, factories, cars, dogs, cats, grass, and people all blend to a drab tannish gray.

Men in work clothes stand in the cold rain waiting for the train to take them home after another hard day.

A pregnant woman struggles to get a baby carriage over the curbside slush pile without dropping her bag of groceries. Clothes are functional. No time for style.

A gang of workmen lined up in the aisle waiting to get off, whisper and snicker at our haircut and clothes. We must seem outlandish to them. Misty and I smile at each other, taking no offense. The train stops and they file off, lunch boxes under their arms, heads bowed against the gray rain. Each seeks out the dreary street that leads home.

The train was owned by The Baltimore and Ohio/Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, and the train staff was proud of it: R.G. Whitling, Conductor; L. Boone, Flagman; and E.A. Popp, Baggageman. Their hospitality brought color back to this leg of the journey.

Nature soon followed suit, producing a beautiful rocky river which wandered for miles through scenic hill country.

Journeys can remain after destinations fade from memory.

Jack Blanchard

Ken Overcast and the Montana LullabyKenOvercast-2.jpg (4505 bytes)

Howdy ,

Here's just a quick note to catch you up on our 
"Montana Lullaby". It was approved by the Montana 
Senate last week and now it's clear sailing to the 
Governor's office. Assuming Governor Schweitzer 
signs off on the legislation, Montana will be the first 
State in the nation to have an "Official State Lullaby". 

We're honored.

We've got a show tomorrow night at the High School 
Auditorium in Havre, Montana with a very special guest. 
Faith Halingstad, the Montana State Pee Wee Fiddling 
Champion, is going to make a special appearance. If 
you're within a thousand miles or so, you can still make 
it on time if you hurry. Hope to see you there.

Keep Smilin'...... 
      But don't forget to check yer cinch.
