So taking those experiences into his religious experiences. Then he came up with a sound and that sound is evident in precious, Lord and win Maui. That sound reached bigger and bigger audiences. Not just because he wrote timeless important songs like precious, Lord and peace in the valley.

And he had people who would go out to church congregations all around the country gospel historian, Jerry Zoltan, they would teach this new style of singing gospel.

"South Carolina. He mimicked the stage moves and vocal acrobatics of his idols the singers of the Golden Gate, coretec the Fairfield four and the heavenly gospel singers, his favorite group was a cortex from a few towns over the Dixie hummingbirds said. They had a style of saying that I used to hear them on Sunday morning. Here's the late IRA Tucker speaking with NPR's, Terry gross in one thousand nine hundred eighty four really like their hominy. You know, I had heard them a good while and I was just trying to keep the train of what they were doing Davis. He created that style. You know, he created humming. Birds sound and it was it was tremendous yummy. You know, he had a beautiful sound baked in he's talking about James Davis. The longtime leader of the Dixie hummingbirds Davis established the group in one thousand nine hundred twenty eight after he witnessed the success of other travelling gospel court tits. A gospel quartet a group usually early on acapella where the four voices are represented in harmony gospel historian, Jerry Zoltin of Penn State university wrote the definitive history of the Dixie hummingbirds. The typical structure would be a lead voice Xu Shang over top. And then middle voices who would carry the harmony backup. And then usually underneath a Beijinger who would pump out the bottom and keep the rhythm going. You know, I think groups were Capella in the beginning because frankly, they didn't have the money to buy musical instruments to take lessons. They worked with. What was right there handy in front of them trail-blazing court tits life, the golden gates and the heavily gospel singers pass through Spartanburg touring churches and revivals on what people called the gospel highway. There were hung. Hundreds of these groups so in the Dixie hummingbirds IRA Tucker saw ticket out of town, his childhood friend. William Bobo was already singing bass with the group. And I remember what he told him. He said well later on I'll come back, and I've try to get you in the group, and I guess about a couple of months, maybe three months, they came back to say, Mr. Davis came back, pop deterrent, thirteen Irish son IRA Tucker, Jillian says the Dixie hummingbirds James Davis recognized his father's talents any as IRA's mother. If he could join the group, so he wouldn't as my grandmother would be all right for my dad to go on the road with the group. She made him promise that he would take care because she felt he stood a better chance with that. And I went to hear them at night, and I've been with me ever since. Hey, john. Yeah. This was in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight for the next couple of years. They would mostly toured the south on the same gospel highway as iris idols. Yeah. The Dixie hummingbirds would get in their car and travel from little town too little town. They called it. Wildcat Jerry's Alton says before the interstate highway era. Jim crow rule the two lane roads. These black gospel quartet wrist real danger. They didn't know where they would go from day to day. They created a path future rock and soul musicians would navigate their would go to a little town and back in those days radio is a far more available sort of thing they'd knock on the door and said, hey, can we sing on your radio station and most of the time that would be okay..

"They've as I pointed out this comes off a CD where the Dixie hummingbirds the old school gospel guys. They went back in snake? Dr John leeann hell who else a bunch of other people in there to truly amazing stuff. I mean, just just weeks engine stuff right there. That's too many troubles Dixie hummingbirds alternative bump music Friday. This is your PHD level music education. Every Friday, we mix it up. We don't we don't do the standard run of the mill bump music. That's good stuff. That's good stuff. But we which which we play Monday through Thursday, all that stuff is excellent stuff. But what we do on Fridays as we just you never know where we're gonna come from one hundred catch on a mouse. Now, I'm looking at a at a post on a daily caller. I dunno. If Tucker Carlson is still part of this operation or not this was his site. Probably who knows. But anyway, he well he's doing his TV show now, but I'm looking at a guy walking along and he's he's trying to hide something behind his back. Obviously, you can see this. If you go. Over the daily caller. In fact, it is titled what is it titled it is titled video show. Well, yeah, it's obvious. The video shows migrants throwing rocks at Mexican helicopter. These are the dirtbags that I have decided to game the United States. These are not good people. This is not as well. Some of them are good people in their refugees. Refugees are not en masse refugees are individuals. This is an invasion force. This is a war invasion force. So anyway, the sky as he's not throwing around. He's got them. All cocktail. It's not like clearly see it. It's a glass bottle. He's got a rag out of the top of it looks like a beer bottle. He started to throw it at a helicopter. This guy is on his way to the United States right now. This guy right here, and you can get over and see this. It says the video from Sunday shows young man, throwing rocks at the helicopter as a Mexican helicopter circling around the also show, one of them also seems to be carrying what appears to be an unlit molotov cocktail on the bridge that connects Mexico and Guatemala. It is a molotov cocktail. I'm looking right at it. Now, the other thing is is that's where they came in. And it's hard to believe that the Mexican government allowed this to happen if they weren't complicit complicit, they never would've. But you gotta keep in mind that when these guys came across the border and busted that fence up and started beating up police, how could the Mexican government let that happen unless they're saying, you know, all hanging out of the way, they're going to the US will help them get through because we want to hurt the United States of America. These are all acts of war. God bless our president for saying. And he straight up said he said if somebody throws a racket shoes truck into the military everybody down there is it's about time. Somebody said this is somebody throws a rocket. You. You considered a rifle considered somebody's shooting at you. That's exactly what it is. Now. There's a story here. I want to click on and let's see as it were the of your attention. It's the purge is not a joke. One hundred plus arrested in Paris after violent Halloween riots in a show somebody with one of those crazy bats like Nagin had in Walking Dead. It'd be a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. And apparently, they're beating the hell out of people over there. What what's going on in the world? Well, I'll tell you what's going on the world actually have an answer for that. I knew it before I said that us being melodramatic what's going on in the world is a communist revolution straight ups communist revolution exaggeration. That's Inouye exaggeration. It's a fact the communist revolution is all about huge government, and the people that are out there right now in the streets. We explain this almost every day to you are the shock troops. Do you know what happens to these people when the revolution finally takes it takes effect comes in all the way large, and let's say gets control what when we get a completely socialist meets communist government worldwide. You know, what happens all these people are done away with? It's always been like that. That's exactly what happened in Italy tapping in Germany happened in China happened in Russia. The people that are out there in the streets. They can they're the revolutionaries. They have to be shut down because they're too powerful and the central planners, the powers that be that think they know better than you. And of course, they know better than them. There's using them to Reynolds right now, they're what they call useful idiots. But man, they wreak havoc while they're out there. Yeah. So here's a guy with a multi cocktail keep in mind. It nothing came of it that we know of reported, but the helicopter had gone any lower. You could see people coming pretty darn close to on rocks at each rack up at the router rotor, rather, whatever it is in a helicopter, especially on the tail end, it's all over Jack. So this guy's got again, a molotov cocktail, and they were throwing those already over the fence when they were Guatemala coming into Mexico. They're coming to the US who's financing it, by the way. Well, I think I told you one of the finance. Here's and it isn't somebody. That's got a lot of dough to finance not like indivisible, and George Soros. No. No. No. No. But it's beta Aurora. Yeah. Beta Aurora the guy that wants to be Senator from Texas. I saw something the other day on the back of a car think for second. Where was I I was in a house in a red light and the car in front of me had indivisible, and it said one nation. Indivisible is George Soros is finance group. It had one nation under God had a red line through it. You could see the under God. But they had red lined out said one nation indivisible that is Soros's operation. Make no mistake about that. They now have bumper stickers for it. So far we've fallen you're on the edge. Salter native bump music Friday..

When she went down to talk trying to get this chick. Stacey Abrahams name is elected governor in Georgia. Immediately went to the lynching. What what was the other a piece what racism just a straight up a racism lynching? And as if slavery is if that's where we are in two thousand eighteen and this is disgusting. It's disgusting. It's become normalized now. Well, weaponized and normalized we don't Lynch people anymore in the south of the people that did were the Ku Klux Klan, which were the Democrats hundred percent. That's huge. There's no slavery. In fact, if you're gonna if your ass go out and get a job work your way up you'll you'll be doing just fine. You'd be doing just fine. In fact, one of the posts, I've stuck up was a piece out of the Wall Street Journal a guy talking about he started out as a security guard because making like twelve bucks an hour kept diligently work in advancing when he could and I guess a couple of years now, he's making twenty seven thirty an hour. And he's he's says he's looking to get some type of promotion and in a management management position with these as well. I mean, it's there you just have to get out of work for it. But you won't know that if you listen to the Debbie Stephanos of the world, if you listen to the Oprah Winfrey's of the world, they'll always paint the picture that you'll never have enough if you're black because the white people have everything I just saw another post and this ties into what Oprah's talking about somebody in Texas went around the neighborhood. Texas television station, and they stapled to to telephone poles. It's okay to be white. And this these these talking heads on the news were were were apoplectic. Who would do such a thing? Well, it is okay. To be white one and two when you have white people being vilified twenty four seven with the Bs an Oprah like contention that white privilege black people never get ahead because white people have everything why wouldn't somebody put something like that and nail it to a telephone pole? So we're in very strange times. And if you're listening to me and your black don't be so stupid as to be gained by these race hustler. Don't walk away walk away from it. Just walk away from it. Go the Republican voting lover and your life will change in that nobody's going to try and keep you down by giving you free stuff. If you vote for us.
