Where is Carleton Cordell? I struck up a kind of friendship with him in the 1980s. I wrote a theme song for his Oklahoma City talk radio show that he didn't give a hell of a lot of airplay to, he interviewed me once regarding satellite television in an hour-long segment that still cracks me up, and there isn't squat about that remarkable person on the internet.
