Talkin' Country "The Rub" (Beginnings - 1933)

Guests Mark Jones, son of Grandpa and Ramona Jones of "Hee Haw," and Dave Smith, host of Ozark Highlands Radio discuss the first episode of Ken Burns' documentary "Country Music." The episode covers what was first called "hillbilly music" and how it reached new audiences through phonographs and radio, and launched the careers of country music's first big stars, the Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers.
