2. My great-grandfather John Wyant was born in 1898 in Indian Territory and died in 1988 while living with me, my brother and grandmother in my hometown, Ark City, Kansas. We often listened together to records from his eclectic collection; he had some truly great honky-tonk, western swing, vocal group and instrumental records — but also plenty of corny, mushy waltzes and organ music. This is one of his original pressings, which I inherited.
