Earl Scruggs Center

This morning I traveled with our Forever Young group from church to the Earl Scruggs Center in Shelby, NC.  I had been wanting to go ever since it opened maybe five years ago, and today I was finally able to make that happen.  I only saw a small part of it, because I got bogged down in all the interactive displays, but they were all so interesting and well done.  I loved reading about the early radio stations that were almost all very local, and enjoyed seeing this map of the most famous ones in the Carolinas – some of which are still on the air today.

I loved looking at the old clips from the TV show Flatt and Scruggs had, and of them performing the Martha White commercial on the Grand Ol’ Opry.  Definitely part of the soundtrack of my childhood 🙂
