Country Music Capital of the North (ft David Norris)

Country Music Capital of the North (ft David Norris)

broadcaster David O. Norris shares memories of a career in public and country radio broadcasting.

Norris shares how Flint came to proclaim itself as the "Country Music Capitol of the North".  He shares highlights of his decades long association with Maybelle Carter and the Carter family.

David shares a great story about Johnny Cash and the Carter Family performing at the IMA Auditorium in Flint during his final career tour.  During the performance an irate fan jumped on stage and attempted to fight with Johnny Cash.  That incident with the fan, in which Maybelle Carter was a witness and David Norris was the program announcer resulted in a lifetime friendship with David and Maybelle.
