From late 1950 to late 1951, you could hear Hank Williams perform on The Mother’s Best Flour Radio Show singing and selling Mother’s Best Flour, as well as self-raising Cornmeal and Pig & Sow Feed. The show was broadcast live every morning between 7:15 and 7:30 a.m. on WSM out of Nashville, Tennessee.
This collection of radio shows is considered by many to be Hank’s best work and were done at the peak of his career. Some of the shows were pre-recorded to be played on the air when Hank was out on the road. During the 15 minute show Hank and the announcer Louie Buck would pitch the flour in between Hank’s songs. Hank even wrote a theme song for the show.
