Mike said, "Yes, yes, yes." Marty continued, "Had on a pretty leather suit. Beautiful." Mike said, "Yes, yes, yes. I like for her to wear them leather clothes. It makes her smell like a new car." Everyone laughed. Mike said, "Okay, just let 'em roar." Marty said, "I know it. Hey, we've got some business to take care of." Mike said, "Yes we do." Marty continued, "True matter. There's a fellow named Rooster up in Idaho that watches us every week and since the very first show, he has been writin' me letters on almost a weekly basis wanting Mr. Mike Sniderto come on and play a song. And so I'm glad we could do that for you, Rooster, but bigger business is at hand. Rooster has his girlfriend at his house tonight watchin' us. Got her on the couch and he's gonna ask her an important question. And he wants to know if you can sing a song to kinda set the mood for the big question." Mike said, "Yes I have. I've got somethin' that'll work real good." Marty said, "Romantic." Mike continued, "Oh it's romantic." Marty said, "Okay." Mike said, "He'll knaw her ears I plum off when I get on to it right here." Everyone cracks up. Mike sings a verse from "If My Nose Was Running Money." Marty said, "That oughta do it right there.That was good." Mike said, "I guarantee ya, he's got ear lobes hung in his throat right now."

Marty said, "That's on one of your big hit records. I love your records. I've got all of 'em." Mike said, "You do." Marty continued, "I used to buy 'em " Mike said, "Is that where they went?" Marty said, "There's several million people watchin'. You oughta talk about your records." Mike said, "Well, you know what. They're probably sittin' out there wonderin' right now 'Where on this earth could we get us some of that.' Folks, this is your lucky day. Look, I got four of 'em here." Marty said, "Yes sir." Mike continued, "This is my collage here of records. Look here. This one's got all comedy songs on it. You can get this for the low price of $20, no, $25. Or you can get this one for the low price of $25, string band music. Or, you can get this one here for the low price of $25. Or this one right here with the banjo playin' and this one here's got jokes and stories. Son, it's unbelievable. You can have one or all of 'em for $25. See, what I'm tryin' to get across is if you get anything, we're gettin' $25. Don't be one of the thousands who have walked off and left these behind." Marty said, "No, no." Mike continued, "See, you can't get these in stores. I can't either. Now, you've got to order 'em from me, see. And Curt probably put this on the screen for everyone."

Marty said, "Absolutely." Mike continued, "Mike Snider, Geason, Tennessee 38229 and we'll send these to ya folks. And listen, this is the great thing about you gettin' these CDs right here. When you come drivin' up in your hometown with these playin' in your car, people are gonna stop and look at you. All right. Listen, I don't wanna put the high pressure on you to buy these or nothin' but things have been tough at home. My mother-in-law had a face lift the other day." Marty said, "No!" Mike said, "Yeah, and they didn't lift it high enough. Yeah, and I'm gonna have to pay for it." Marty said, "Oh, come on, I'm sorry." Mike said, "Yeah, the doctor he come in and said, 'I've got good news and great news' and she said, 'What is it, doc.' He said the good news is the face lift went perfect. The great news is that I had enough skin left over to make ya a pair of cowboy boots." Marty said, "Aw, we better get outta here before we get in trouble. You won't do. We better turn it over to Eddie Stubbs." Mike said, "Take 'er away there Mr. Excitement." Marty said, "Buy Mike's records." Eddie said, "See me after the show." Eddie promoted Marty's book of photographs, Country Music: The Masters.

After a commercial break, Marty said, "Welcome back to The Marty Stuart Show, ladies and gentlemen. Hey. Mississippi sponsors our show and I'm proud of that coz that's my home state. Now if you wanna see beauty and history all wrapped into a mighty spirit, you might enjoy a visit to the great Mississippi gulf coast. Pretty sand, warm water. Nice people, Mr. Snider. Beautiful flowers and trees. Now that's all the beauty of it. And a significant, historical marker on the coast is Beauvoir the last home of Confederate legend Jefferson Davis. Beauvoir, along with the Confederate Museum, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier offer history. And the mighty spirit I spoke of belongs to all the good people. Still standin', unmoved by Hurricane Katrina. They're buildin' back again. How 'bout a hand for my fellow Mississippians. That's mighty. Speakin' of mighty.

Leroy: "Well, I tell ya what."

Marty: "What."

Marty: "Okay, well pick one. What's it gonna be?"

Leroy: "You sure did."

Marty: "It's gonna be, ummmm, 'Comin' From The Ball'. And Brian and Matthew, umm, play it pretty now. No hesitation."

Marty said, "Yeah, that's all. What rhymes with 'ball'. 'All', yes." Eddie Stubbs said, "Ah yes, the lovely and talented Leroy Troy and 'Coming From The Ball'. Some folks have said they don't know whether Leroy is comin' or goin'. We'll let you decide, how about that.

I told you they had a house full of kids, pretty kids. It sounds like a music store at their house. Music comin' out of every room. Kell's here with us today. Brought your whole school class with us. Thank you for bringin' 'em." Kell said, "Yeah." Marty continued, "Yeah ..." March said, " MHMS third grade." Marty said, "Yes sir.
