    It's safe to say that most people attending Kinky Friedman's Valentine's Day concert won't be expecting the outlaw country music singer to serenade them with a bunch of silly love songs. After all, the irrepressibly satirical Friedman, aka the "Legendary Texas Jewboy," is notorious for politically incorrect tunes that gleefully stretch the bounds of good taste, such as Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in Bed, How Can I Tell You I Love You , A-hole from El Paso and, of course, They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore .

  12. Songs We Love: Kinky Friedman, 'Christmas Card From a Hooker in Minneapolis'Read the original story w/Photo

    Dec 14, 2015 | National Public Radio

    There's a certain sort of vacancy to many holiday songs, their picturesque settings and sentiments functioning a bit like portrait studio backdrops, ready and waiting for somebody, anybody to walk into the frame and momentarily own and animate it with their presence.

    You wouldn't exactly call it autumnal, but Kinky Friedman's new full-length, The Loneliest Man I Ever Met , may be the great Texas-bred singer-songwriter's most mature work, and it's almost certainly the best record to date by the novelist, satirist and occasional aspirant to public office.
