Ahhh, yeah, Mel Street...

Hey, who here likes Mel Street? I sure do! "Forbidden angel, I know I must let you go...While everything in me says love you, my better judgment tells me no...I love you so I know I can wait to unlock heaven's door, when my forbidden angel is not forbidden anymore..."
I think the first time I ever heard Mel Street was on Bryan-College Station's 98.3 KORA back in the late '90s when I was living in that area. I knew George Strait had done at least one of his songs and I knew the name, but once I heard the voice I was a fan instantly. Mel Street had a great honky-tonk voice....he was another of those singers who died way too soon and isn't played or even mentioned nearly enough.
