From Suwannee River Jamboree to Suwannee River Roots Revival

This old time radio show, Suwannee River Jamboree Radio Program, has some names you probably have heard of, others no doubt famous at the time, others more local, and others, well enthusiastic.

Welcome to the Florida Folklife Collection podcast series from the State Library and Archives of Florida.

In this feature we’ll take a nostalgic look at old time Florida radio with an original broadcast of the Suwannee River Jamboree preview. The Suwannee River Jamboree was broadcast from WNER out of Live Oak, Florida.
