Sammy Forsmark told his readers back in 1941 that
listeners to WRDW in August, Georgia would get to hear
more Leslie Palmer and Jack Hilliard since the station
would soon be upgraded to enable broadcasting at 5,000 watts.
Our research turned up a small nugget from The Columbia News
from October 20, 1938 that mentioned that Leslie and Jack
would be performing a special feature at the Appling Courthouse.
That appearance was in conjunction with a Fiddler's Convention
that was being held at 8:00pm at the Appling Courthouse.
Some of the bands that were to be on that show were
Warrenton Band, the Thomson Band, the Lincolnton Band,
the Grovetown Band and the Appling Band.
