One swallow doesn't make a jug... I mean a summer...

A springtime gift of pink azaleas from an old time radio show:

Breakfast in the Blue Ridge - Audition Sales Pitch:
"“Breakfast in the Blue Ridge” was a popular syndicated country music program featuring “National Barn Dance” performers Lulubelle and Scotty. In this post and the next, we hear two sides of the Audition disc for the series, circulated to station programmers and advertisers."

I like the way Rand's Esoteric OTR site even gives you the label of the transcription disc for a programs... In this case the "program" is actually a promotion for the series, interviewing Lulubelle and Scotty about their new morning show... a nice behind-the-scenes look (or listen).

After the sales pitch comes the sample program, so here it is, if you're more interested in the music than how radio was made in the old days.

It really makes me sorry I don't have them to listen to at drive time these days.
