Durable Formula for Grand Ole Opry
Robert Shelton, The New York Times, 26 November 1961
NASHVILLE, TENN. After thirty-five years of broadcasting, the grand old dinosaur of American radio, Grand Ole Opry, is as boisterously alive as ever. The show began on Nashville's Station WSM on Nov. 28, 1925, and aside from time off for a few Fireside Chats by the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt, has an uninterrupted record of Saturday nights that span a whole era.
