Lonnie Salyer is a crate digging, record collecting connoisseur of local treasures. On his radio program, Dig It with Big Lon, he spins the best vinyl our local area has to offer. Airing on Radio Bristol, out of the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, you can hear everything from the early Country and Bluegrass of the '20's and '30's, to R&B, Soul, and Gospel of the '60's and '70's, and all of it was recorded and put out by local studios, here in the Tri-Cities Region. Lonnie talks about getting into record collecting and how he came to be an appreciator of Appalachian culture a little bit later in life primarily through his interest in music. I loved this interview and loved meeting a like-minded person, interested in preserving and promoting our rich heritage here in Southern Appalachia. Sit back and enjoy our time together with Lonnie "Big Lon" Salyer.
