A.V. "Bam" Bamford

AV (Bam) Bamford was a colorful country music producer originally from Cuba. During the mid-1930s, he owned and operated a string of radio stations, mostly in the southern United States. As a promoter of these stations, he often befriended performers who would perform live on the radio or at remote locations such as state fairs. Over the years he was asked to manage a number of musicians, including Hank Williams. In fact, during our interview with Bam, he recounted the final days of the country legend and the last time they saw each other, which was just hours before Williams died.
