Superlatives?" The Superlatives answered, "Yes." Marty continued, "We must give a shout out to our dear friend, Mr. Hartley Peavey, and all the staff at Peavey Electronics." The Superlatives said, "Yeah" and "Right." Marty said, "You'll notice all the equipment on this show was handcrafted by Hartley Peavey and the folks and we love it. Anywhere you go on planet Earth, you'll find music being played through systems that sport the name Peavey. And I'm proud of Hartley Peavey. He's an American original and that's a fact. So how 'bout a Superlative thank you very much to Mr. Hartley Peavey. Yeah. Speakin' of originals, here comes one. A friend to all on the blacktop and dirt road of life, John Anderson.

Marty: "Whatcha mad at?"

Leroy: "Well, not really. But I am gonna cut a monkey shiner "

Marty: "That'll be good."

Leroy: "This is a good ole toe-tappin' fiddle tune and I'm sorry, I'm doin' it not as a fiddle tune today, Joe. One called 'Bully Of The Town'."

Marty: "There it is. That's right."

Marty said, "There it is. Thank you, music lovers." Marty walked over to The Superlatives. Marty said, "Handsome Harry." Harry said, "Yes, sir, Marty. All right." Marty continued, "Handsome Harry." Harry said, "Yes." Marty said, "Would you sing us the song from the New Testament that brings it right down the line." Harry said, "Well, yes I'd be happy to." Marty said, "All right." Harry said, "Friends and neighbors, it goes like this." Marty and His Fabulous Superlatives performed "Who Is This Man."
