This recording, an extract from one of Bill Cason's radio shows, was originally broadcast over Radio Station WWL sometime in 1956. It obviously caught the imagination of someone who thought it would make a nice memento for the staff and management at the aluminium plant in question. The song was issued on a single sided RCA custom pressed record. The label was actually silver print on a green background, but that just wouldn't scan, so what is displayed below is the only way that I could get a readable scan.

  1. I'm wondering if that is Johnny Bonvillian on steel? The playing is so generic that it would be hard to ID any steel player, but I'm not even sure if he was with Cason as late as 1956.
