  • One reel to reel. Boltin served as the emcee. See the festival program in S 1619, box 1 for more detailed information of the festival performers and activities not recorded. The pageant, presented by the City of St. Augustine, was written, composed, and narrated by Barnes. The performance began on reels T76-34 and T76-35. Cox and the Suwannee River Jamboree Boys were performers on the WNER-Live Oak radio station's Saturday night program, the Suwannee River Jamboree. Florida's largest and best known country music show, it was broadcast live three hours every Saturday night, with 30-minute versions syndicated across the Southeast. The show featured many North Florida and Southeast acts such as the Stanley Brothers. For a recording of that radio program, see reel T85-66.
