Grand Ole Opry SpectacularAh, yes, folks, another Tuesday morning means another Country Music Jamboree. Let's see for this week, we'll start with one side of a record entitled "Grand Ole Opry Spectacular".

Hank WilliamsSpeaking of the Opry, we'll pay tribute to the Grand Ole Opry perennial favorite, the great Wilma Lee Cooper, who passed away last Tuesday. She was best known for performing with her husband, Stoney Cooper.

Another Grand Ole Opry favorite (who was eventJimmy Martinually kicked out and never reinstated), Hank Williams would have celebrated his 88th birthday last Saturday. In his honor, we'll be airing an old radio show Hank did back in the 40s.

The King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin always had the dream of being a member of The Opry, but was continuously snubbed by the establishment. Tom Russell (soon performing in Fairfield) has a great song about the struggles of Jimmy Martin. We'll spin that song and a bunch of other songs about and by Jimmy Martin.

Besides all the above, I've just got a bunch of great traditional country, bluegrass, and western swing music, so if you love country music, DON'T MISS A SINGLE MINUTE!
