The World Of Folk Music - shows #188/189
Here`s an unusual item I never knew existed until I stumbled across these discs on ebay. I have about six of these discs and will be posting them all. So... what we have here is a transcription disc of a radio show hosted by Oscar Brand. Each side of each disc has a guest on it. Before I listened to these I figured the show was done by using existing recordings by the guests, but no, they are recordings made just for this show. We also get a little bit of back and forth talk between Oscar Brand and the guests. These discs were made for information about Social Security, as you will hear by the stories on the sides in lieu of advertisements.
Show #188`s guests are Sam and Kirk McGee with Arthur Smith
1. Bow Ye Down - Oscar Brand
2. Dusty Miller - The McGee Brothers and Fiddlin` Arthur Smith
4. Roll On Buddy - The McGee Brothers and Fiddlin` Arthur Smith
5. Great Granddad - Oscar Brand
Show #189`s guest is a group called The Tripjacks. I have no idea who they were, nor do I care for their style of singing, but I`ve posted the disc as a whole.
1. The Hind Part Of A Mule - Oscar Brand
2. Let Me Fly - The Tripjacks
4. Child Of The Moonlight - The Tripjacks
5. Lowlands - Oscar Brand
