Throwing things back to the 40s with this archived photo of the Dixie Dudes, a folk and bluegrass band active from the early 40s to the mid 50s. On the far left is Homer “Briarhopper” Drye, who later formed the bluegrass band “The Briarhoppers,” the first house band at Charlotte’s WBT radio station.
