If you tune in on Sunday you will hear the two different influences and how they differed---and also, later, blended. To some extent. You will hear the White Gospel of salvation as evinced by Roy Acuff and Hank Williams.
Which will lead us into the world of people like these:
The Dixie Hummingbirds---together now for over 75 years.
The program will have a lot more, including a some old favorites and some wonderful new material. A few surprises as always.
In our interview you will also hear of John Denver's recording prior to Arlo Guthrie's and of Denver's claim to partial authorship. Great story.
