Nashville Cats

 

The Nashville Sound takes us back to time when State Fairs were more likely to be on a country performer’s itinerary than stadiums. When superstardom meant you stayed after your show to sign autographs. A promotional campaign was solitary ad in the back of Billboard magazine and singles and radio airplay were the main way of getting your music heard by the public. Songs became hits because they sold in thousands and occasionally in the millions. That was the Nashville sound of the late fifties to mid-sixties. Tune in to KBOO.fm or 90.7 FM Saturday morning from 6:00am to 9:00am for a trip through the golden age of country music.
