Listen to Viking Twang at 9 a.m. Sunday, June 7 to hear the music discovered, produced and promoted by influential 1920s-30s recording executive Ralph Peer. The man who discovered Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter Family also created markets for blues singers, string bands, and African-American musicians, and developed systems to make sure they got paid fairly for their work. You can read liner notes for the music I’ll play on the Viking Twang blog here on kpsu.org, and watch for the playlist and download link after the show!
