On Border Radio, Vol. 1

About an hour of material taken from transcription discs recorded for broadcast on XET in Monterrey, Mexico in 1939. This isn't extraneous stuff by any means, containing their characteristic harmonies and well-executed guitar arrangements. It's of special interest to Carter Family fans, however, for the inclusion of much material that the group never recorded in their original lineup (although six were recorded by Sara and A.P. Carter with two of their children in the 1950s). The demands of constant radio broadcasts necessitated a wide repertoire and varying approaches, and this collection also shows facets of the group that were underrepresented on record. These include instrumentals, several songs by A.P. on which he accompanies himself on guitar, and a few selections featuring the young daughters of various members of the Carter family (June Carter among them).
