Summary
Includes recordings of programs featuring Holland R. Wilkinson (1893-1954), including "The Sunshine Hour," "The Book of Memories," and "Our Scrapbook." These programs include the singing of hymnals, secular songs, and gospel music, and the spreading of messages of inspiration and hope. Holland R. Wilkinson, also known as the singing evangelist and the "Sunshine Man," hosted these programs, assisted by Bertha Hewlett on the organ and Bob Beadles on the piano. The Sunshine Hour was first broadcast on WRVA on 28 March 1927 and aired until 1954. WRVA - 467 includes an endorsement of the Sunshine Hour by a devoted listener, the Reverend James U. "Jimmy" Edwards of Matoaco, Virginia. Reverend Edwards, an invalid for twenty-three years, tells from his bedside the importance of the Sunshine Hour to shut-ins. WRVA - 469-470 includes Sunshine Hour chimes. WRVA - 474 includes the last recorded program of the Sunshine Hour and the Sunshine Hour Memorial Program. The last Sunshine Hour was recorded before Holland R. Wilkinson's death but broadcast the day after. The Memorial program, produced by WRVA in tribute to Holland R. Wilkinson, who died on 11 December 1954, includes tributes from C. T. Lucy, Bertha Hewlett, Bob Beadles, Sam Carey, Ruby Raabe, and Walter Bishop, and recordings of Wilkinson singing listeners' favorite psalms. WRVA - 475 contains recordings of the music used in the Memorial program
