This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
How Did Nashville Become the Hub of Country Music?
Most of the credit for Nashville becoming Music City belongs, oddly
enough, to an insurance company. In 1925, the National Life and Accident
Insurance Company had the ingenious idea of launching a radio station
in Nashville to promote its business. They called it WSM for their
company motto "We Shield Millions" and they mostly played classical and
easy-listening "dinner" music. But Saturday nights were reserved for the
WSM Barn Dance, an evening of live (and lively) country music.
