Comedian and country music lover Susan Calman guides listeners through the laughs that can be found within country music.

From the wry smiles and wistful wisdom, to the explicit jokes and tales of misfortune, comedy has long been a trademark of country music from a surprising range of artists.

The laughs don't only come from some of the fabulous song titles and one-liners, but also from the way songwriters approach the subjects of their songs. As with all comedy, these songs reach outwards to the listener for empathy and a response, rather than simply looking inwards in a way that no other genre quite manages.

Join Susan for an hour of great music from the past fifty years, with some tracks that will surprise you and some you'll already know and love.
