Wayne Glenn has collected phonograph records, newspapers, sheet music and pictures, among many other things, for nearly 40 years. He's a man with a deep love of history, and hanging on to these items helps connect him to monumental moments of the past.
His most recent book, The Ozarks' Greatest Hits: A Photo History of Music in the Ozarks, begins by defining the Ozarks—not only as a region, but also as a culture. The book continues with the history of music in 417-land, including big names and popular hits on the radio and many small bands that performed at local festivals. "The book includes a real mixture of everything, from the Ozark Mountain Daredevils to a fiddler in Ava," Glenn says. It covers a little more than 100 years of history, starting with the Civil War era and ending in the 1970s.
Glenn's love for history is connected to a passion for learning about the past, and more importantly, learning about things that have never been deeply researched before. This is what led Glenn to become an author. He has written one book a year for the past seven years. His books are mainly about the history of small Missouri towns, such as Nixa and Ozark. But Glenn bit off a much larger chunk of research with The Ozarks' Greatest Hits.
Many of the musicians covered in the book weren't known for their songs being broadcast on the radio. Rather, they were known locally for performing in their small towns.
So how was Glenn able to adequately research them? "I'm a literary detective," Glenn says. "I'm not very literate, but I'm literary," he laughs. He visited many colleges and universities throughout the Ozarks for much of his research. He also spent many hours looking at microfilm and historical records in several libraries throughout the region. It was in these situations where Glenn would meet people who knew other people who knew the performer, which in many cases earned him interviews with family members of artists.
...
Glenn says much of his life has helped him prepare for writing such a book. "It took a year to do it, but it took me a lifetime to get ready," he says. In addition to saving memorabilia relating to all kinds of singers and instrumentalists and collecting phonograph records, of which he estimates he has about 15,000, Glenn has worked as a radio show host for KTXR FM since 1977 and still hosts two programs every weekend.
He also worked as a teacher (history, of course) and then a school administrator from 1970 to 1983. As an educator, Glenn knew that history tends to die with the people who know it. He didn't want that to happen to the music in the Ozarks region, which was another inspiration for writing this book. His Saturday radio show, called Remember When, is a combination of both old music and nostalgic trivia. He describes his Sunday show, Nostalgia Time, as very similar. Glenn is able to include much of the music from his record collection on the show, and he also uses the backs of a record's case to create trivia questions.
Glenn says he hasn't missed a program since he started hosting more than 30 years ago. With this experience, he not only learned about many types of music, he also had the opportunity to interview many notable musicians, including Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Pat Boone.
