Here is a fine and rare photo, from the late 40s, that program donor Arnie Stephens sent in to Triple-R Radio – Arnie’s dad, Joe Stephens, posing with the great Hank Snow at radio station CKCL in Truro, Nova Scotia. I’m thinking that many Hank Snow collectors out there may have never seen this picture before.

Arnie writes:

My father, Joe Stephens, was a DJ for a short period in the late 40’s in Truro NS.  I still have a photograph of my Dad standing in front of a microphone at the radio station (CKCL) with Hank Snow, the up and coming lad from Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

Thanks, Arnie!

We heard four early Canadian Bluebird sides from ‘Hank, The Yodeling Ranger’ on the August 12, 2013 edition of Roy’s Record Room.
