It was announced Thursday that previously unreleased recordings of Hank Williams performing on a 1950 radio show will be released in May, both for download and on vinyl:

"The Garden Spot Programs, 1950" features 24 songs and jingles from a taped show that aired on early country radio stations, sponsored by a Texas plant nursery. Most of the tapes were lost, but only the copies from one station, KSIB-AM in Creston, Iowa, survived. The recordings were transferred, restored and mastered for release May 20 by Omnivore Records.

 

The singer's daughter, Jett Williams, said in a written statement that no one knew these recordings existed."
