The WWVA was one of the longest standing continuous live radio broadcasts in the nation. Mr. Scott’s best known classic country recordings include, “Pick Me Up On Your Way Down” and “I couldn’t Believe It was True.” More recently, Mr. Scott has become well known for his tributes to the compositions and careers of country music icon, Willie Nelson.
