Musical Interlude: Made in Japan (1972)

Buck Owens reached #1 on the country chart in 1972 with "Made in Japan", which references the growing--at the time--expansion of Japanese companies into the US. As Buck sings, his "transistor radio comes from far away", which would mean it was either from Panasonic or Toshiba. I think.

"Made in Japan" turned out to be Buck's last #1 single as a solo act, regardless of what he recorded after. Go figure.
