This week we dig into the riches of early country music recordings to hear classics of old time mountain, white and African-American gospel, blues, classic country and bluegrass. Host Paul Brown guides us through the fascinating stories of artists, the unique sounds they produced, and the evolution of southern American traditional music from the days of the first major commercial recordings in the 1920s to the bluegrass era.  Hear from greats including Bill Monroe & His Blue Grass Boys, The Carter Family, Jimmie Rodgers, Hazel & Alice and many more.
