General Fan Discussion Forum / Been 8 years since I joined here..
« on: April 05, 2012, 09:19:27 PM »
The latest post/thread started by sta51(John) below  made me curious about when I joined this site..March 15, 2004..Over 8 years ago..Time does fly..And its been a fun ride.. :)

In looking through the DVR Program Guide for the coming week, I see Wilson Fairchild (Formerly Grandstaff-Wil and Langdon Reid) is scheduled to be on Larry's Country Diner over RFD-TV Thursday Night at 8PM ET  and Saturday Night at 11PM ET..Should be fun and an absolute blast..

General Fan Discussion Forum / Ohio Tenor soloist sings "Who Do You Think?
« on: February 19, 2012, 03:14:43 PM »
Eric John Hawout, (pronounced Howitt)A Young Man out of Warren Baptist Temple in Ohio has a gospel singing ministry with his family..He was at the church I attend, Massillon Baptist Temple this morning and will be there tonight..He and his family are very talented and he has a great tenor solo voice.  In looking around for more information on him I found this YouTube clip of him singing the Statler Brothers Gospel song, "Who Do You Think?"  from their "Holy Bible New Testament"  Album they did in the 70's..

A friend a few years ago gave me nearly 6 hours straight through of audio from Television station WEWS-TV Channel 5 in Cleveland, Ohio dated Friday, May 24, 1963.  Among the shows broadcast that day was Talk Show "One O Clock Club" which aired from 1-2:30 PM, and was a big hit until Mike Douglas came along on rival KYW-TV 3..

Part of this show featured Young Southern Gospel Group The Goss Brothers singing a neat little song called, "I'll Be So Happy There"..The Brothers were singing at Cleveland Baptist Temple that weekend..What is unique about this is that Southern Gospel Music was just  getting started in Northern Churches, and to have a secular program feature a Southern Gospel group in the early 1960's was extremely rare..Host is Bill Gordon who was on radio and TV in Cleveland and other places from the 1950's to the 1990's..

I make a daylong trip to Cleveland 2-3 times a year.  Today I was at a suburban Bookstore called Half-Price Books..Found both volumes of the Gaither Statler Videos packaged separately for $9.99 apiece.  Half-Price Books is a chain store with a number of locations nationwide..Wish they were closer to me..

General Fan Discussion Forum / Johnny Cash Show in Canton, Ohio-1966
« on: September 03, 2011, 12:27:51 PM »
Here's a link to the latest post in my vintage Media Blog..A February 16, 1966 return visit by Johnny Cash (With the Statlers) to Memorial Auditorium in Canton, Ohio..Canton is where the Statlers got their start with Johnny in March, 1964..

Here is today's post on my Classic TV/Radio blog..While the post itself may not be of that much interest to folks, I put up an ad and a TV Guide listing for "Harvest Holiday" a variety special headlined by Jimmy Dean with guests Minnie Pearl, Pee Wee King, Redd Stewart and others..This was produced and aired at WEWS-TV 5 Cleveland, Ohio and shown on stations in Cincinnati, Columbus and Toledo Wednesday, October 10, 1962..

The sponsor was Landmark Farm Bureau Cooperative..They had earlier sponsored a Saturday Night Country Music series on Channel 5 Cleveland in the 1950's called "Landmark Jamboree" where Dottie West got her start..Of course, Jimmy Dean had been a great friend to the Statler Brothers over the years..

General Fan Discussion Forum / Harold and Don's Book on ITunes
« on: February 09, 2011, 11:27:06 AM »
Hello folks..
Havent been around much lately, but finally replaced my computer a couple weeks ago, so I'll be around more..

In buying the IPod Touch recently I've been looking around the ITunes Store..They have Harold and Don's Statler Brothers CD Audiobook on sale as a download (Search Don Reid or Harold Reid under Music) for $49.99..While that is a bit pricey for me they do sell some single chapters (10, 12, part of 15 and 18) for 99 cents each..I bought Chapter 10 (How Do You like Your Dream So Far) and Chapter 12(We owe it all to yesterday) last night..

Chapter 10 tells of their trials starting out after leaving Johnny Cash..

Chapter 12 tells the full story of Lew leaving and Jimmy coming on..

Harold reads both chapters..Great to hear the stories coming from him..Sad how Lew's illness played out, but of course it all turned out..If one does'nt have or  can't afford the book, here's
a way to sample it..Makes me want to get the whole book that much more..

Jimmy stuff / Stark County Fair (Canton, Ohio)
« on: September 22, 2010, 01:16:33 AM »
I had mentioned here on the message board several times that I would love to see Jimmy perform at the Stark County Fair where I live here in Canton, Ohio..The 2010 Fair just concluded..Just thought I would send an email to the Fair Board talking up Jimmy..Here is what I wrote..

     Would like to suggest a Main entertainer for next year's or the following year;'s Stark County Fair..Jimmy Fortune, former tenor singer for the Statler Brothers Country music group..Since The Statlers' retirement from touring in 2002, Fortune has carved out a nice solo career for himself as a Country/Gospel Singer, Recording 4 CD Albums and a DVD.  He has made a number of appearances on Various Grand Ole Opry Shows and The Ernest Tubb Music Jamboree..
     I've seen Fortune perform live twice in the last several years,,He has a great stage presence and is outstanding with the fans..He was inducted as part of the Statler Brothers into the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 2008..
Here is a link to Jimmy's Website
There should be contact information there..
Thanks for your time:

Tim Lones"

Don't know if anything will come of it..all we can do is try..

Just a note to let fans in the Youngstown/Warren/Niles, Ohio area (and parts of Western Pennsylvania) know about a new radio station in the area-1540 WRTK Niles, Ohio has just changed over to classic country, calling themselves "Youngstown's Country Legends" is their website, with a "Listen Live" Link..

I know this has nothing to do with Jimmy or the Statlers, but A lot of "New" Johnny Cash Show Clips have surfaced..This is from a "Country Gold" segment with Superstars Bill Anderson and Jan Howard with a medley of a few of their hits..Johnny Introduces them..The clip looks great considering how old it is..

Back when TV variety was good, wholesome fun..

General Fan Discussion Forum / Eddie and Rose-Lancaster, Pa. 2006
« on: July 12, 2010, 08:52:12 PM »
Here's a picture of Eddie and Rose I took at the time of the Lancaster, Pa. Concert in January 2006..Pre-show dinner

It was great meeting you two at that time..If you would like to download the picture from my Facebook page, you are more than welcome to.  

I have a quick question to those who were around at that time..Were there other picture sharing sites besides Snapfish and Flickr?..I put the pictures on one of those sites, but cant find them on Snapfish..I know I didnt use Flickr..I might have just deleted them on Snapfish..Just wondering..Thanks

This you have to see to believe..Johnny Cash tells the story of the "Outlaw" S p o o n  Brothers  (had to write it that way-somehow that word is not allowed on this site) in a comedy sketch with June Carter Cash (as their Mama) and the Statler Brothers..Didnt know they did an involved comedy bit like this on the Cash show..
