Cybergrass recently reported that this Stanley Brothers acetate had been included in Virginia Association of Museum's "Top 10 Endangered Artifacts" of 2018, and that the association is asking people to vote for the 'People's Choice Awards'. The two items with the most votes by midnight 25th Jan (EST time) will be awarded a grant of either $5,000 or $4,000 to help with their restoration.

To vote please use the link below. You will need to enter your email address (and confirm a link sent by email), and then you can vote again every 24 hours, up until the competition deadline.

There is some stiff competition, so every vote counts!

From the visible label on the disc, it looks like the late '40s transcription disc probably contains versions of We'll Be Sweethearts In Heaven, Little Maggie, The Nine Pound Hammer and Are You Waiting Just For Me.

Bluegrass Today have also reported that if the disc wins the grant then the Birthplace Of Country Music museum is planning to restore the audio using the non-destructive IRENE process developed by the Northest Document Conservation Center.

The winners will be announced on 6th Feb - so watch this space!
