Transcript of the Introduction

Welcome to the Florida Folklife Collection podcast series from the State Library and Archives of Florida.

In this celebration of the Holiday Season we're joined by the staff of the Stephen Foster Memorial Center of White Springs, Florida. The radio program that we're about to enjoy was created by The Stephen Foster Memorial Center in 1963 and broadcast by radio stations in Central Florida.

It features the Starrett Family of Gainesville, Minstrel Mark Moore and the tubular bells of the carillon tower at the Stephen Foster Memorial.

Now, let's tune our dial back to 1963, Happy Holidays and enjoy.
