Mr. Davenport became a collector of old time radio programs in the late 1980s. When returning to his hometown in Sylacauga, Alabama, and visiting the radio station where he had worked while in high school he came across this collection of Sons of the Pioneers Teleways Transcripts. He recalls fond memories of listening to the Sons of the Pioneers shows in the late 1940s.
