    Willie Nelson was an air personality on "9-10 K-Van" from 1956 to 1958.

    This from All Access:

    I think this statue should feature a pipe, being held out, as if to a friend. People can come up, load a bowl, and remember Willie.

    Willie Nelson's music is not usually on my box, BUT

    "What Was It You Wanted" composed by Dylan, is a must-listen for any fan of either man. It appears on a nineties Dylan tribute with other big names.

    "The faint smell of marijuana smoke wafted through a crowd of about 2,000 people."

    Conan O'Brien, on his show last night:

    "The statue of Willie was so realistic that he tried to buy weed from it."
