UNRELEASED RECORDINGS FOUND

Hank-Williams

Hank Williams, Sr.  (
Hiram King Williams)  (9-17-1923 / 1-1-1953)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Previously unreleased recordings of country music
legend Hank Williams performing songs on a 1950 radio show will be released
next month for download and on vinyl.

"The Garden Spot Programs, 1950" features 24 songs and jingles from a taped
show that aired on early country radio stations, sponsored by a Texas plant
nursery. Most of the tapes were lost, but only the copies from one station, KSIB-
AM in Creston, Iowa, survived. The recordings were transferred, restored and
mastered for release May 20 by Omnivore Records.

The singer’s daughter, Jett Williams, said in a written statement that no one knew
these recordings existed.

Williams’ biographer, Colin Escott, wrote the liner notes for the album and said
the recordings were used to augment live acts on local radio stations.
