WFHU 91.5 to Broadcast Program Featuring Eddy Arnold Music

Henderson, Tennessee - May 11, 2021

WFHU 91.5 will broadcast a special one-hour program, “Eddy Arnold and His Place in Country Music History,” Friday, May 14, at noon, immediately following the dedication of the marker designating Henderson as the birthplace of the music legend. The program will be repeated Saturday, May 15, at 2:00pm and again Sunday, May 16 at 3:00pm.

Host Rodger Holtin said, “I’ll focus on the early part of his career. Those records don’t get heard much any more. The change he exemplified in the 50s and 60s are represented by the stuff that’s more common today. I’ll put that in context of where country music was when he started and how he changed it by changing himself.” Holtin stressed that the show is from his personal perspective as a record collector.

Holtin noted that Saturday, May 15, 2021, is the 113th anniversary of Arnold’s birth. With a recording career that spanned seven decades, 85 million records sold, and fans that numbered into the millions, he certainly is a country music legend,” Holtin said.
