Happy birthday, Johnny Cash!


...when a local cop showed up he asked Stu, "What are you hanging around here for?" and Stu said, quoting Johnny Cash, "For whatever's about to go down, that's what for."

Country Style, USA is a series of 15-minute radio and film programs produced by the US Army as a recruiting aid from 1957 to 1960 featuring top American country music artists. Each year 13 episides were produced in Nashville, Tennessee and distributed to local radio and TV stations.

Johnny Cash and the original Tennessee Two, Luther Perkins and Marshall Grant.

These are vintage radio broadcast transcription discs (at times you can “hear” the vinyl which adds flavor). The sound quality is amazing.

Country Style USA is from 1958, Guest Star is from 1959.
