Eddie Weldon's "As I Ear It" column during the 60's, 70's and 80's had an estimated listening audience of a million people, transmitted with 100,000 watts of AM power on XEG radio with honorary announcer, Mr. Hank Snow of the Grand Ole Opry.

The beginning of this year, I've been asked to be their guest with my recitation "The Old Man On The Road", written by Pookie Henderson and Clair Weldon, Produced by Bill Yelton and Robbie Wittkowski.

Carol Lee Cooper performs backup vocals as Larry Merritt plays keyboard for Eddie on The Old Man On The Road.

From our guestbook... Robbie Wittkowski (Nashville, TN) had to say:

"I appreciate Bobby’s nice comments about my museum. It truly is a labor of love. I appreciate the support of so many country artists in our industry who have donated or loaned clothing and memorabilia. I am proud to announce on Eddie’s website that Eddie Weldon will be included in my museum right beside country greats like Roy Acuff, Jim Reeves, Ernest Tubb, Bill Anderson, Conway Twitty, Loretta Lynn and so many others. Eddie Weldon has contributed in a variety of ways to this country music business. Just think of the hit records that he helped break on the radio...I know he’s responsible for helping break hit records on Bill Anderson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Willie Nelson and numerous others. Not to mention his own recordings like "Letter to Mama" that has touched many hearts and souls. His promoting of country music continues now on the internet and on his show "As I Ear It". His photo will be included in the Roy Acuff exhibit of my museum. I just want him to autograph the photo for me. I hope to see some of Eddie’s fans and friends on the road when I take my museum on tour in the upcoming year. By the way, Happy Birthday Pookie."

FROM THE SHOOTING STAR... "THIS IS AS I EAR IT."
