After a meteoric rise to radio super-stardom in the late 1940's, Hank Williams had made a train wreck of his life. At the end of 1952, Hank Williams gathered what was left of his physical strength to make things right and began the long road back. On his way to a couple of New Year's shows in West Virginia and Ohio, he hired a local kid who didn't even own a radio, much less know who this legend was, to drive him to the gigs from Montgomery, AL. Hank Williams never got there. Inspired by the mysterious final days of Hank Williams' life, The Last Ride is the story of that final drive through the bleak Appalachian countryside of 1950's America.

Rarely has a country balladeer mastered his craft at so many levels. Merle Haggard could have carved his niche as one of the world's premier songwriters, musicians, or singers. He's that good. Instead, he chose to sharpen his talents in all three dimensions and become the quintessential Rural Renaissance Man and a true artist whose gift sets a lofty standard for all country performers to come. For true fans of country music, it doesn't get any better than Merle Haggard.

More than a year after opening, the Lerner Theatre is finishing the last piece of its restoration puzzle: putting the organ in. The installation of the 1,127-pipe organ started on Monday, August 13th, and will continue for three weeks. Bunn-Minnick Co. of Columbus, Ohio, is in charge of the restoration. The company builds and services pipe organs throughout the country. Over the last year, the company has been restoring and enlarging the organ. It added another Kimball organ from 1927 to add a larger variety of sounds. The addition of the second organ has more than doubled the organ's number of ranks, which are a type of sound like trumpet or flute. The organ has a range of percussion sounds including xylophone and celesta. There are also "toys," which include bass drum, snare drum, cymbals, chimes and Chinese gong.
