Nationally recognized independent Grand Ole Opry historian Byron Fay offers news and comments regarding country music's premier show.
Mr. Fay! Thank you so very much for posting these line ups this year! It's a huge help to me personally! I'd love it if you'd remain the one stop shop for Opry news in 2017! A quick question. I'm sure you are aware, that the Country Music Hall of Fame has a very VERY large sound archive digitized online going all the way back to the first Prince Albert broadcast. It's quite a remarkable collection including many WSM broadcasts having nothing to do with country music but wonderfully preserved. The collection does not go into the modern shows at all. If I wanted to hear a full radio broadcast from when I was growing up (I was a TNN baby, and always remember the crowd reaction to Mr. Acuff) where might I find any?
