Robert Earl Keen dropped by the KSUT studios on a hot summer day for performance and conversation.

The Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee has been making albums and touring since the mid 1980s.

That means he has a few stories to tell.

He and KSUT host Jim Belcher settled into an extended conversation about music, touring, and life.

He also played a few songs for us. By the time Robert's set was over, even the one-armed monkey was sweating.

A technical note: KSUT Sessions were initially mixed for live broadcast and 'captured' by recording equipment. Post-production sometimes revealed deficiencies unique to the recording. Efforts were taken to reduce such deficiencies, but some are still audible.
