It should be added that Tom T Hall is also a succesful prose writer.
- this has since been added, but more info could be given about the subject matter of his books.(mercurywoodrose)126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:56, 20 February 2011 (UTC)
How about a picture?
- no images at wikimedia commons. short of that, someone can write an article on an album which has his photo on the jacket, such as any greatest hits compilation, or storyteller and the banjo man" with earl scruggs.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 00:03, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
I believe that "Fox on the Run" was written by Tony Hazzard, not Tom T Hall. --Drdkm 23:28, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
- You are correct, sir: Fox on the Run (Manfred Mann song), but neither this article nor the discography credits hall at this time.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 00:06, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Possible copyright violation
The introduction section is verbatim from http://lyrics.uz/xtmos-tom-t-hall.html. Don't know if it copied Wikipedia, or the wikipedia entry copied it. --Anonymous, 10 April 2008
- checked this link (dead) and article history. no sign that this was ever written in a style suggesting it was a copyvio. i think we can relax about this.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 00:10, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
"Pop Goes The Country"
I know for sure that Tom T. Hall was the host of "Pop Goes The Country" LONG before 1980. I remember him hosting it before 1976, although he might've simply been subbing for Ralph Emery on those shows that I saw back then.188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:52, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
- Hall was the host from 1980-1982. I added a source. Ralph Emery did host from 1974-1980. I haven't found a source for any appearances prior to that.Tomsv 98 (talk) 21:17, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
- It is the same station, the call letters change in 1969. I changed the wording to "Hall was also an announcer at WSPZ, which later became WVRC Radio, in Spencer, West Virginia in the 1960s." To avoid confusion with the radio station serving Birmingham, Alabama which carried the call letters from 2006-2010 and the station that currently has the call letters WSPZ (570 AM) — branded SportsTalk 570.Tomsv 98 (talk) 21:07, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
