As a kid I appeared several times on the "Saturday Nite Barn Dance" in the mid to late 1950's. It was great being around Lowell Blanchard, Jerry Collins, Troy Hatcher(drums ), Dave Durham (trumpet), Don.Gibson, Red Rector, and Fred Smith. Tony Musco and Harry Nidus were regulars.They were all very talented. We traveled all over Tennessee and N.C. doing shows. Great experience for a 12-14 year old. When younger I attended the "Mid Day Merry Go Round" on N. Gay Street. Darrell Glen sung "Crying in the chapel". Hotshot Elmer always stole the show. Great memories.
