FROM THE SHOW: RECORDS, JUKEBOXES AND RADIO

Allerton "Al" Hawkes began his musical career on radio in rural Maine, playing mandolin as one-half of the interracial Cumberland Ridge Runners with guitarist Alton Myers. Hawkes brought rock and roll and country to his native New England through his label, Event Records. Known locally as the Walking Man because of a huge sign in front of his old radio and TV repair business, Hawkes recalls his heyday in the record business.

RECORDS, JUKEBOXES AND RADIO

American Routes joins with two record men this week to study the means of production... in jazz and country. Michael Cuscuna, founder of Mosaic Records, talks about his reissuing of lavish collectors sets of jazz from Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Count Basie and many more. Al Hawkes joins us from the Maine woods, where he's been making old-time country, bluegrass and rockabilly records since 1955--some of his own, some on his independent Event Records label.
