- Uncle Jimmie Thompson playing "Lynchburg" Go to http://www.juneberry78s .com/sounds/ListenToOTCountry.php , scroll down a bit past the halfway point and give the recording a listen. Just right click the lil icon and save it. Fred Waterer wrote about Uncle Jimmie in passing in the June Monitoring Times, Programming Spotlight. “He was the first "star" of the Grand Ole Opry. In this recording he mentions he is 82 (born in 1848 that makes the recording from 1930) and that he learnt this tune in 1866. Listening to it, you can understand why he was a star of early radio. Quite a character, which comes through in the spoken introduction, and about halfway through the recording.”
