The Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night back in the good old days. You work all week, but on Saturday night all work came to a halt! After dinner we all gathered up the chairs and sat them around the radio. My Uncle would say “Boys and Girls its time to go get the “R. C. Cola’s” and Moon Pies”!  We slid out of the chairs and went lickitty split to the ice box and grabbed them!

Back in the living room my Uncle would turn on the radio and tune it to the Grand Ole Opry. Sometimes he would have to check the ground wire on that old radio to be sure every thing was ok. You talk about some of the best foot stomping, and hand clapping music you have ever heard! It would be coming out of the radio like it was live from Nashville Tennessee. Some one at the Grand Ole Opry would step up to the microphone and say “Ladies and Gentleman this is the “Grand Ole Opry” in Nashville Tennessee!”, and if Minnie Pearl was there she would say “Howdy glad you all could come!”

The music would excite you so much that it was hard to keep still in the chair with all the hand clapping, and foot stomping we were doing! Why sometimes it felt like the whole house was rocking! Ha. Good thing it had a good foundation.

Remember the next time you tune into the Grand Ole Opry, take a minute and be sure to have a R.C. Cola and Moon Pie!
