Hank Williams Mother's Best Radio Shows
by Mike Taylor

Generated on 17 Dec 2012


The Mother's Best shows were broadcast live between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. on WSM out of Nashville, Tennessee and Hank was paid $100 a week for recording the shows that usually consisted of one country song, one instrumental and a gospel song to close the show. During the 15 minute show Hank and the announcer Louie Buck would pitch the flour in between Hank's songs and Hank even wrote a theme song for the show.

"I love to have that gal around
Her biscuits are so nice and brown
Her pies and cakes beat all the rest
Cause she makes them all with Mother's Best"

The shows were pre-recorded onto 16" transcription discs, each with two complete programmes, to be played on the air when Hank was out on the road. Shelved for decades, these recordings were almost thrown in the trash before Les Leverett, a radio station employee, salvaged them and few years later sold them (for a relatively small fee) to Hillous Butrum the bass player of the Drifting Cowboys. In 1997 he sold them to the Legacy Entertainment Group who were going to market them but were prevented from doing so by a lawsuit brought by the Williams estate. After an eight-year court battle it was established that the Williams estate had the ownership rights to the material on the discs. The Williams estate then licensed Time-Life to issue the material in 2008.

Bob Pinson had arranged for Alan Stoker to transfer the transcription discs to tape at the Country Music Hall of Fame. Time-Life acquired those transfers and then gave them to Joe Palmaccio, who engineered the 10-CD Mercury/Polygram set. Joe carefully applied noise-reduction technology in such a way that the presence is unimpaired.

Undoubtedly the transcriptions discs do not contain all the Mother’s Best shows broadcast as some discs have probably disappeared over the years. I have seen no pictures of the discs but there appears to be no dates on the majority of the discs just a disc number. Several proposed air-dates for the programmes have been published I have used the Transcription disc order.

I have included two “Aunt Jemima Pancakes” shows in the database as one of the transcriptions (16-A1) is Aunt Jemima show # 1.
