August 23, 2018

23rd August – birthday of Al Runyon (Aug 23, 1918 – Dec 24, 1998) country singer who enjoyed a long career as a radio broadcaster from the late 1930s to early 1960s. Talents included an ability to mimic country, rockabilly and pop artistes, and doing comedic routines (as country bumpkin ‘Uncle Elmer’). Two of BACM’s compilations feature several of his recordings: BACM 387 (Following In The Footsteps Of Jimmie Rodgers) and BACM 511 (Hillbilly On A Budget ) which has several superb covers of Hank Snow hits.
