News Roundup #3

There are quite a few things worth checking out this morning. First would be Chuck Peters’ report on an upcoming DVD of Anthony Burger’s final taped concert appearance. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link appears to be down, and has been removed.]

Alan Kendall’s review of a Kingsmen/Gold City/Kingdom Heirs concert is worth checking out. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]

In the roundup of Southern Gospel news articles from local newspapers, check out the Daily Citizen’s (Searcy, Arkansas) coverage of the Melody Boys, the Cleveland (Tennessee) Daily Advertiser’s coverage of Dottie Rambo, and an article in the Clanton (Tennessee) Advertiser on the Blackwoods returing to Clanton to do a free concert in the same town where a tragedy devestated the 1954 Blackwood Brothers. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]

Finally, note this St. Petersburg Times coverage of Naomi Sego, identified as “one of five ladies being credited with being the “First Ladies” of gospel music.” This begs the question (not quite clarified by the reference to the Grand Ole Gospel Reunion) of who the other four are. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link no longer works and has been removed.]
