Johnny Cash Radio Show


John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), born J. R. Cash, was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.

In 1954, Cash moved to Memphis, Tennessee, where he sold appliances while studying to be a radio announcer. At night he played with guitarist Luther Perkins and bassist Marshall Grant. Perkins and Grant were known as the Tennessee Two.

Here is a rare recording of "The Johnny Cash Radio Show" from around 1954 at a radio station in Memphis, Tennessee. The show aired at 4 P.M. I believe this is the very first episode of his radio show.
