To Jimmy Kilgo's granddaughter! Wow, is there anyway contact can be established with anyone who has tapes or movie clips, etc of Kilgo's Canteen. My husband is 70 this year and for his birthday we'd like to find photos or movies taken of his band, The Fairlanes, who performed on Canteen around l959-1960. The Band was from Statesville, NC and it seemed to be a memorable highlight of their teen years. Grandson here would love to see Granddad's band footage or audio recordings if you could direct us to any source whatsoever.Hello Everyone!
I randomly stumbled across this page and found it extremely interesting. Jimmy Kilgo is still alive and well with his wife Wilma. I am his granddaughter and we've enjoyed hearing stories about the Kilgo's Kanteen growing up. It's something as a kid, we always I heard of but there are very limited pictures, tapes, etc. If anyone has anything such as pictures, tapes, interviews, etc. it would be awesome to see some of it. I know grandfather will be happy to see some of these comments and know that people still think of him!
Thank you for any help you can provide. Linda, now from Maiden, NCnn
