The Nashville Hotshot and the Country Star
Country music legend George Jones died on Friday April 26 at age 81. Jones has been called the quintessential country singer.
WYSO general manager Neenah Ellis created a radio documentary about Jones in 1992 for a public radio program called Soundprint.
A visit to Nashville, Tennessee during Fan Fair, an annual gathering of dedicated country music fans, serves as the backdrop for a review of George Jones long career. Ellis takes listeners inside the recording studio as Jones makes an album that he hopes will mark his comeback.
