Set the time machine for early morning on KSIB, Creston, Iowa. February, 1950.

Hot on the heels of the collectable 10″ vinyl Record Store Day EP—Omnivore Recordings is proud to present The Garden Spot Programs, 1950, featuring 24 performances, unheard for 64 years, from the one and only Hank Williams!

Rescued from obscurity, these shows originally aired over 6 decades ago, and The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 collects material from the four of them now known to exist.

From hits to standards to songs rarely (if ever) performed, this is pure Hank Williams, including playful, between song banter. Fully restored to incredible quality, The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 is more like being in the studio when they were recorded than actually listening to them on the radio!

The CD packaging contains rare photos from the collection of set co-producer and Williams biographer, Colin Escott, as well as new liners. Also available on LP and contains Escott’s informative notes and a download card.

Any music from Hank Williams is worth celebrating. Discovering material that has been unheard for generations is monumental.

 

It’s incredible to me that we’re still finding new recordings by my dad. Great ones, at that! No one even suspected that these recordings existed. We partnered with Omnivore Recordings for this release, and I especially love it that they’re taking my dad back to vinyl.

— Jett Williams
