61-Scoop Ten

Ready for another scoop? Here's another sampling of what's left in the Christmas pile, nearly two months after we started. Some of these are new finds but some of them are things that I had ready to go on day one and just haven't gotten to until now.  It's been a crazy season with lots of highs and maybe a few lows, but not too many. I can see the end from here, but I've got a few days left in me.  We'll see how it goes. One special record today is the one directly below by Ernie Lee And His Southerners. When I was a wee lad, Ernie hosted the morning show on the local CBS (now Fox) affiliate, WTVT, AKA Big 13. I had no idea he was a one-time national recording artist on a big label, though I did later find a record he released locally with members of his morning show, which I think was called Breakfast Beat. I can remember the local news and weather, a fishing report with Salty Sol from John's Pass, and frequent songs from the small set. I don't remember any of the songs, unfortunately, and that local album wasn't very interesting. This song is a little better, and I'm pleased to be able to share it as part of the winter festivities around here. This record and all the rest come to us from the fine folks at The Internet Archive, specifically their Great 78 Project. Download and Enjoy!

I am pleased to make the acquaintance of Ernie Lee and his You Can't Pick Your Nose in December, and wonder if Salty Sol from John's Pass made any records.

Seriously, some nice ones in here!

I doubt if Salty Sol ever made any records, and according to the link I found, he wasn't the fishing guy. He was the sports guy, though I think he went fishing with Captain Hubbard, the guy that did give the fishing report. To this day, the big place to catch a fishing excursion in John's Pass is Hubbard Marina. :)

And you can pick your nose in any month you like, though I'm not going to watch...
