The minstrel and annex bands were features at the show grounds. Here were a group of colored minstrels, players, band people, under the direction of Edward Rucker... The band plays pretty airs of all kinds, suiting the music nicely to the work in hand. When the snakes were exhibited it played a charming waltz; somehow it fitted the exhibit; others were of similar propriety - The Indianapolis Freeman, July 4th, 1914, quoted in Ragged But Right by Lynn Abbott and Doug Seroff

The story of evangelists in America from Billy Sunday to Billy Graham. The program will emphasize the powerful and
far-reaching effects evangelists have on America by showing in action such foremost representatives as Aimee Semple McPherson,
Oral Roberts, gospel singer Mahalia Jackson, "The Holmes People" of Alabama, Don R. Rees, president of the Southern Conference
of the Seventh Day Adventists, David Brinkman of Augusta, Ga. and William Carradine, also called "Cat Iron" of Natchez, Miss.
The program features a thorough photographic profile of Billy Graham's Madison Square revival in New York and his appearance
before a record audience of 100,000 persons in Yankee Stadium. [RF]

here`s a link to the site:-

I remember vaguely a photograph in an old copy of the"Folk Music Sourcebook" of Cat Iron standing behind a 
clapperboard.It must`ve been for this tv show.I wonder if the footage still exists or it is being streamed somewhere?.He was so under recorded it`s amazing to think there  was/is film of him.

Well, that's bloody tantalizing. I for one would love to see some footage of Carradine.

Quite a find there, and the episodes seem to be in existence... at least the sound of jazz episode is:

Not blues, but some great footage of basie and other greats nonetheless blue I shade a part of this town.
