Still Rollin' After All These Years

(Starts at 20:45)

Asleep At The Wheel has been making country-western swing music for nearly 50 years. At this point, they’ve carried on a tradition, which started in the 1930s, longer than the genre's progenitor — Bob Wills, The King of Western Swing. Asleep at The Wheel founder Ray Benson talks with The Frame about then band's latest album, "New Routes," meeting Bob Wills before his death in 1975, and recruiting the band's newest fiddler, 30-year-old Katie Shore.
