There's some fellows - I shouldn't say nothing because I made some of those jive records, too - but they should have at least two meanings to what their song is. There is going to be little children hearing those songs, you know - Tampa Red, quoted in the liner notes to Don't Jive Me

Did Leadbelly really appear on the Louisiana Hayride? If so, anyone have any details?
Thanks.

There's no index reference under either Hayride or Louisiana Hayride in the index of Wolfe & Lornell's 1992 Leadbelly biography and I'm sure if it was mentioned by them I would have remembered it. It's the sort of tidbit that's hard to forget!  :)

The website states the Hayride started in April 1948, Leadbelly died in December 1949. A quick skim read through that period covered by the book and the associated notes at the back the term Hayride failed to catch my eye...

Check out this site:

And this paragraph...
"Laird shares tales of how the Hayride nurtured talents like Shreveport native Huddie Ledbetter, better known as Leadbelly, the ?king of the 12-string guitar,? Jimmie Davis, the singing governor of Louisiana who penned ?You are My Sunshine,? and a generation of studio sidemen and producers who steered popular music long after the Hayride?s weekly broadcast heyday".

Still wondering..Never heard of this..

Hmm, by the time the Hayride began these cited artists were long established so how could it possibly nurture them? Especially in the case of Leadbelly who had been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. ;D
