UPDATE 8Nov21: The Archival show ran successfully this past Saturday, but the DJ following cut off the program before my concluding Announcement ran. Here is the text of the announcement:
Nope, it’s not 12:30 PM, and it’s not October 31st, 1992, either. We’ve been listening to a selection from the Hillbilly at Harvard Archives, featuring a live appearance by the Lynn Morris Band, then celebrating the release of their second album on Rounder Records.
The Lynn Morris Band released three more albums on Rounder, the last in 2003 when Lynn Morris suffered a stroke that prevented her from performing afterwards. Happily, she was just recognized for her spectacular career by the International Bluegrass Music Association, which inducted her into the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame at their 2021 World of Bluegrass events in Raleigh, North Carolina.
I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to the Lynn Morris Band, along with Old Sinc co-hosting with me and emceeing the live portion, and to guests Ken Irwin, John Lincoln Wright, and Flo Murdock.
Remember, the Country Calendar announcements on these Archival shows occurred long ago, so don’t circle your calendar, and don’t call any phone numbers, either!
If you’d like to hear more Archival Hillbilly shows, or if you have a suggestion for a particular show you remember, email me at Hillbilly@WHRB.org; that’s Hillbilly@WHRB.org. Or leave a comment on the Paper and Pen page of the Hillbilly at Harvard blog; go to HillbillyatHarvard.Wordpress.com. That’s HillbillyatHarvard.Wordpress.com. I’m Cousin Lynn, and I’d love to hear from you. Would you like us to continue this Archival series? Let me know.
Stay tuned for contemporary bluegrass, country, and Americana on Hillbilly Jamboree, right here on WHRB, Cambridge Country.
Not that regular listeners care about these Announcements, but they may help new listeners explain what they just heard. This is important. /CL
ANOTHER ARCHIVAL HILLBILLY AT HARVARD
It was a technical error that derailed last week’s Archival Hillbilly show, featuring a live set from the Lynn Morris Band (see previous post). This week I’m told we’ll be back on track, so tune in at 9 AM Eastern (the last day of Daylight Savings Time), and hear for yourselves. /CL
