  1. Great to see such coverage on such obscurities ae these. Al - as requested, more scans are on the way. Until now #1071 was the first I knew of on Red Barn and all earlier releases were on White Church and Blackwood Brothers.

    The Jack Holden discs are a fine threesome and I don't have and indeed never heard 1153. Fiddler Wayne Midkiff would marry Jo Depew, a school teacher who was bassist for one of the Jimmie Skinner records. I remember well because we wanted to speak to Jo as well as Wayne. Jimmie Skinner Jnr contacted her but hubby Wayne wouldn't speak to anyone or let her.

    Dave Sax.

  2. Jo Depew and Wayne got married while they were both working at WPFB in Middletown, Ohio with Smokey Ward's Barrelhead Gang. At that time, Wayne was calling himself Wayne Tilford. Tilford was his middle name. Jo was a good singer in the Molly O'Day style. One of her more popular numbers was "Why Do
    You Weep Dear Willow". Later on in 1963 they cut a gospel record on the Ark label in
    Cincinnati with their daughter Angie.
