Lowell Blanchard and the WNOX Mid-Day Merry-Go-Round weren’t the only source of good country music in Knoxville. The Cas Walker Farm and Home Show on rival station WROL was a popular (albeit lower-budget) alternative to the Scripps-Howard giant. Walker began broadcasting on Knoxville radio around 1929, and would continue his country music-themed programs on both television and radio well into the 1980s. Through the decades, Walker would discover a multitude of country music legends such as Carl Smith, the Everly brothers, and of course, young Dolly Parton. Identified in this photo is Buster Moore, later of Bonnie Lou and Buster fame (back row), and Knoxville radio favorite Little Miss Helen. Helen Moyers would later change her name to Penny Jay and become one of Nashville’s top songwriters, composing classic country music tunes such as “Don’t let Me Cross Over” and “Widow Maker,” among others. Can any sharp-eyed Metro Pulse readers help identify the other members of this early Walker band?
