About This Item

Dallas: Stamps-Baxter Music & Printing Co, 1939. 198 x 135 mm. [1], 2-48 = 48 pp. Bound in stapled paper wrappers, soiled on front and back covers. Pages slightly yellowed, some foxing and staining throughout, pp. 23-26 loose. An advertisement for a new Stamps-Baxter publication, "Favorite Radio Songs No. 2" on pp. 46-48. With some condition problems, and priced accordingly. An fascinating piece of Dallas radio history, being program notes of an All-Night broadcast of early Southern Gospel Music on KRLD Radio Station (July 1-2, 1939). The pamphlet contains information and photographs of 30 obscure, now forgotten Gospel singing groups from all over the American South, and thus remains a valuable source of information not obtainable elsewhere. According to the introductory article by Harvey A. Armstrong, the purpose of the All-Night Bradcast was "to help promote and encourage nation-wide and better gospel singing." Many famous songwriters and Southern gospel music composers were in attendance that night as well, including Luther G. Presley, Albert E. Brumley, Wilbur Wilson, and V.O. Fossett, all of whom worked exlusively for Stamps-Baxter Books at the time. Their portraits can be found herein as well. Stamps-Baxter Music & Printing Co. is responsible for the publication of many country, gospel, and bluegrass "standards," including "Precious Moments" and "Farther Along." As a way of promoting their music, the company sponsored gospel quartets to sing their music in churches throughout the United States, many of which performed in the present All-Night program.
