In December 1994, Ichabod Caine, on his syndicated gospel radio show “Honky Tonk Sundays,” interviewed country music star/amazing fiddler Charlie Daniels. During his long career, Daniels had many hits that crossed over from country charts onto the Billboard Hot 100.
Since Charlie Daniels passed away on July 6, 2020, Ichabod chose to share an aircheck of his Christmas time interview with Daniels from 26 years ago. During the show, they played country music, they played Charlie’s music, and the two of them spoke of Daniel’s life, career and faith.
