Hank Williams, Sr. [VIDEO & AUDIO]
Hank Williams starred on the Louisiana Hayride which was heard for many years on AM 1130 KWKH and had a show during the morning on KWKH.
Hank Williams’s legend has long overtaken the rather frail and painfully introverted man who spawned it. Almost singlehandedly, Williams set the agenda for contemporary country songcraft, but his appeal rests as much in the myth that even now surrounds his short life. While living in Georgiana, Alabama, Williams met Rufus Payne, a black street performer who gave Williams guitar lessons in exchange for meals. Payne had a major influence on Williams’s later musical style.
