Received a note from Johnny:
I am Johnny Poer. Had a great time working there as an air personality from
1950 to 1961. It was special to work on the air with The Louvin Brothers, Vern Gosdin, Rebe and Rabe,
and many other great folks. I shared MC work with Dan Brennan at many Dixie Jamboree shows.
Developed friendships with
Carl Smith, Johnny Cash and Sonny James. Carl just celebrated his 82nd birthday.
I enjoyed your website. If I can answer
questiions or help you in any way please let me know.
Incidently in answer to one of the questions on the site, Joe never
sang anything on the air while I was there.
