On behalf of a documentary project on noted Wisconsin (by way of
Pennsylvania) fiddler Andy Shandor, I'm looking for a transcription of a
Grand Ole Opry recording from late June/early July 1940. Shandor's band was
called "The Melody Ranchers", alternatively they could have used the name
"Andrew Shandor and His Cowboy Wingsters". I recognize this is a bit of a
long shot. Also, does anyone have a good source of promotional stills for
country acts of the time? I've checked with the Country Music Hall of Fame,
and the Opry itself.
Thanks in advance.
