Saturday Song: C.W. McCall–Convoy

Last weekend, a few poets, myself included, made the six-hour drive across Wyoming from Sheridan to Cheyenne to attend a workshop. We traveled in two vehicles, not a great big convoy but a convoy all the same. We communicated with cell phones instead of CB radios. It reminded me of this song.

A fellow blogger recently solicited suggestions for a name of a group of poets. A convoy of poets was exactly what we were last weekend, and it was a lot of fun, not just the traveling. I hope we can do it again next month when we attend the Wyoming Writers conference in Dubois. Enjoy the song, and have a great Saturday.

  1. I enjoyed this so much today! Sure brings back so many memories for me – traveling in a hot Nissan sports card with my friend Helen – she and her husband were CB Clubbers, so we had a blast talking to others along the way with her CB.


  2. Hi, Abbie–“A convoy of poets” seems like a good suggestion for a group of traveling Wyoming poets.  I would have never thought of this idea.

    Thanks and enjoy all the poetry events–Alice


  3. Isn’t it odd how things happen. I was tuning the radio dial last night and heard “Convoy” on a local country station. What memories that song brings back! By the way, I still have a few CB radios but nobody seems to be using CB anymore up here in Alberta.
