Set the time machine for early morning on KSIB, Creston, Iowa. February, 1950. Hot on the heels of the collectable 10' vinyl Record Store Day EP Omnivore Recordings is proud to present The Garden Spot Programs, 1950, featuring 24 performances, unheard for 64 years, from the one and only Hank Williams! Rescued from obscurity, these shows originally aired over 6 decades ago, and The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 collects material from the four of them now known to exist. From hits to standards to songs rarely (if ever) performed, this is pure Hank Williams, including playful, between song banter. Fully restored to incredible quality, The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 is more like being in the studio when they were recorded than actually listening to them on the radio!
Hank Snow had three hits in 1965, but none of them are on Sings Your Favorite Country Hits. The album was aimed at Snow's fans, who would happily consume his versions of recent hits and older favorites because they enjoyed his voice and were familiar with many, if not most, of the songs. The then-"current" hit songs (all from 1963) include "Six Days on the Road," "Mary Ann Regrets," and "From a Jack to a King," while the oldies feature Marvin Rainwater's "Gonna Find Me a Bluebird"; the ever-popular "White Silver Sands"; and Jimmy Dean's first hit, "Bumming Around."
