AllMusic Review by

The third volume in the Classic Country Radio series of '50s and '60s Louisiana Hayride broadcasts includes a number of artists from the previous two volumes, as well as the Louvin Brothers, Carl Smith, the Browns, and Sonny James, among others. A particular highlight is the clear recording of Johnny Horton's "Whispering Pines," which features a 30-second spoken intro. As with all of the discs in this series, the sound quality is inconsistent and the running time brief, but the opportunity to hear vintage Louisiana Hayride broadcasts may outweigh these deficiencies.
