Subject: BS: Traditional Music Museum Job Opportunity

While traveling through Tennessee, I stopped in Bristol to see if there were any memorials to the so-called "Bristol Sessions", a remarkable two weeks in the late 1920s when visiting record producer Ralph Peer discovered and recorded many of country music's greatest pioneers including Jimmie Rogers and the Carter Family. The influence of these recordings still helps to shape American music.

It turned out that not only were there historic site plaques, there was a brand new museum, The Birthplace of Country Music Museum. It was one of the highlights of my 8,000 mile trip around the US. I learned more than I ever expected and was entranced by the ingenuity of the displays as well as by the recordings there and the historic items on display. I was also impressed by the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff who in one case, in order to answer one of my questions, went into the office to find some current information I was trying to locate. He found it and I think was as pleased to be helpful as I was to be helped.

I am writing this because I have just received a message from an acquaintance I made on the museum staff during that visit. He told me that there was a job opening for an outreach specialist. He said that a knowledge of content was important so I thought of Mudcat.

For the right person, this would be a dream job.

They can have our place names. But they should pay a royalty on our language.

They didn't pinch Petaluma. An iconic place, where the world wrist-wrestling championships take place. It was Charlie Brown's idea to enter Snoopy one year, I recall. But alas I have forgotten the outcome.

They got out of that by doing a new arrangement.

And on the Seventh Day Petals Fell on Petaluma

(the only context in which I've ever heard of the place).

End of digression?

Why not continue? It does keep the post at the top of the list.

Bristol is a principal city of the Kingsport−Bristol−Bristol, TN-VA Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is a component of the Johnson City−Kingsport−Bristol, TN-VA Combined Statistical Area − commonly known as the "Tri-Cities" region.

Do they vote in Elect-Tri-Cities? Shocking, I know.

Bristol is also the birthplace of Tennessee Ernie Ford.

Tennessee Ernie Ford, too, is well represented att he museum with recording, video and artifacts. The city is well aware of its musical heritage. There is even a luncheonette that proclaims it was the last stop of Hank Williams for a bite to eat on his final trip.

Streets are names for famous country musicians. For instance, I don't know of another city that has a street named after Pop Stoneman.

From the link "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet". They are apparently looking for a fluent Roman.

'It was Charlie Brown's idea to enter Snoopy one year, I recall. But alas I have forgotten the outcome.'

"In 1968 Charles Schultz did 11 comic strips where snoopy was coming to Petaluma to win the World's Wristwrestling Championship. Unfortunately In the final strip he was eliminated because the official armwrestling rules stated you must lock your thumbs with the opposing competitor. Snoopy had no thumb."

How's about cooking somethin' up with me?

Bristol Burger Bar

The "I Can't Help It," which takes its name from the sad "I Can't Help It If I'm Still In Love With You," is a burger with bacon and cheese, while "Your Cheatin' Heart" is heaped with "secret sauce," green chiles, sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, and cheese.
