From the Desk of Park & Bond

Agenda Item: Cash Rules the World

A slimmed-down look at your week in culture.

Among the many gems in this week’s Agenda, Park & Bond rightfully highlights the latest Johnny Cash collection, Live Around the World. Chronicling Cash’s career from his earliest days in the 1950′s to his headlining appearances in the 1970′s, the two discs of live recordings capture everything from an NCO club performance in Vietnam to his 1970 concert at the White House, on personal invitation from Richard Nixon. (Legend has it that Cash turned down Nixon’s song requests due their political—Nixon’s politics, not Cash’s—nature, but the Man in Black later claimed he just didn’t know them.)
