Sunday mornings growing up were always the same. Mom was in the kitchen fixing breakfast. We were picking out our clothes to wear to church, Daddy was sitting in his favorite chair by the door reading the Herald Dispatch. And Les Beasley and The Florida Boys were on the television.
The show was on for over 3 decades, becoming one of the longest running gospel music TV series. They features such greats at the Happy Goodmans, The Hinsons, and The Cathedrals. I remember this show with fondness. My love of gospel music has its roots in this show and the many wonderful voices we were blessed with each week. Many of those old greats have gone on to live in the very Heaven they sang so much about. In honor of their memory, here are some of my most favorite moments from the show.
