about

These selections reflect a variety of traditional and popular music played by the Seymour family and their community in the late 1940s. Several tracks are from Saturday night programs of The Ross County Farmers (Lonnie Seymour, Joe Elliot, Eldon Shoemaker and others), broadcast by local radio station WBEX. A few are from other broadcasts; the rest are home performances of family and friends. The recordings were made on a disc-cutting “Ultratone” machine owned by Lonnie Seymour. – Lynn Frederick & Susan Goehring
