Transcript of the Introduction

Welcome to the Florida Folklife Collection podcast series from the State Library and Archives of Florida.

In this feature we'll take a nostalgic look at old time Florida radio with an original broadcast of the Suwannee River Jamboree preview. The Suwannee River Jamboree was broadcast from WNER out of Live Oak, Florida. The program ran from 1952 to 1962 and was billed as the deep south country music show from the heart of the Suwannee River Country.

This broadcast, believed to be from 1958, was created from a tape reel transfer of one of the original transcription discs from the radio program. So, let's sit back and adjust our dial for 1958 and the Suwannee River Jamboree preview, the show's about to start.
