Horace Logan’s career in radio began when he was 16 years old and won a contest as an announcer for KWKH.
After his military service, he opened a gun shop, but was persuaded to come back to the radio.
There were plans to restore the Municipal Auditorium and be held the Louisiana Hayride there again.
Meanwhile, the restoration was carried out successfully under new owners.
"The Cradle Of The Stars" - as the Hayride was called - was especially emerging talent as a springboard, but offered also established musicians who the strict regime of the Grand Ole Opry did not want to undergo, opportunity to gigs...shipments were definitively set.
David Kent took over the naming rights in 1975 and revived the Hayride 1973-1987 again.
The epithet of Hayrides is "Cradle Of The Stars" because the show was known for many musicians as a springboard to a career and for his musical innovation. It had a large balcony that curved around on either side of the stage, and giving the room a natural echo.
The balustrade was decorated all around with a small wrap of velvet, and the main room had folding chairs that could be taken up for dances and basketball exhibitions.
The name "Louisiana Hayride" was chosen because it suggested and also localized country music.Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.Behind the stage were spacious dressing rooms and a large, common dressing room on the second floor were set up as a meeting place for artists.
Admission to the Hayride cost 60 cents for adults and 30 cents for children.
From 1954, a 30-minute excerpt was transferred overseas via the AFN network.
