Dr. Humphrey Bate
and the Possum Hunters
Born:  June 14, 1914
Died:  June 12, 1936
WSM Grand Ole Opry

One of the earliest stars of WSM's Grand Ole Opry and billed as "One of the outstanding features" on what they were calling this "Old-Time Show" even back in the 1930s when the Opry wasn't even a decade old, perhaps reflecting on the tenor of the show. Music was a hobby to Dr. Humphrey Bate; he was really a bonafide physician and a graduate of Vanderbilt University. They said that "Old time tunes rendered by this team are really something to listen to. We'll vouch that they'll cure some of your ills."
