Point of interest for Springfield history with Wayne Carson


   Here in Springfield my uncle worked for KWTO and the Red Foley show back in 1937 up to mid 50’s,  his name was Jerry Osburn.

     Wayne Carson the writer of “You Were Always on My Mind”

lived with my uncle in Springfield for many years in the old days. In my travels on the road with Roy we played shows with Wayne Carson and I asked if he remembered my uncle Jerry Osburn, He said with a big smile! Not only did I know him, I lived with him!  He taught me how to play the guitar! It was a great memory and I got to play You Were Always on My Mind with Wayne many times, one time it was just he & I, Piano & guitar,  it was an honor!

  I have many old photos of my uncle playing KWTO , other radio stations and TV shows with Waynes parents, Shorty & Sue. I made copies of the photos , gave them to Wayne on one of our road gigs, he sat down and cried.
