Maggie Warwick talked about the history of The Louisiana Hayride as she gave a tour of the Shreveport Municipal Memorial Auditorium. The auditorium was the home of this radio and later television country music show broadcast that had its heyday from 1948-1960. The program helped to launch the careers of some of the greatest names in American country and western music, including Elvis Presley. Many audio clips were played.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Shreveport, Louisiana, on February 6-9 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
