This week the pile of old records on Backbeat includes Amos Milburn, Roy Acuff, new release from self-described vintage song stylist Linda Carone and Chuck Willis bragging about his domestic policies. We'll hear a couple of gospel groups that broke through to the mainstream without abandoning gospel (a rare trick) plus we'll hear from the leader of one of them, Clarence Fountain, saying what he thought of the whole thing back in the day.
