4/20/20 The Ozark Jubilee

The Ozark Jubilee was hot stuff in the fifties. Here’s a good read from Ozarks Alive: https://www.ozarksalive.com/looking-back-ozark-jubilee/

“The program, which aired weekly from 1954 to 1960, drew around 25 million viewers. It helped make Springfield the third leading producer of network television in the entire country behind New York City and Los Angeles.”

The Ozark Jubilee Digitization Project: https://libraries.missouristate.edu/OzarkJubilee.htm

The project is still in the early stages (considering there are 60 episodes to be digitized), but the Ozark Jubilee YouTube channel has some good content already: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNc7tF09cPH0l7rhF_u_Scg

The Musical Divide’s recent article “Country Music’s Been Everywhere, Man” mentions the Ozark Jubilee: https://themusicaldivide.com/2020/04/19/country-musics-been-everywhere-man/
