LONG TRIP Doug and Beryl Weedon of Sydney, Australia, visited the Jimmie Rodgers Memorial Museum at Highland Park on Monday. Doug Weedon, a disc jockey with AIR-FM in Sydney, made the trip with his wife to get a real feel for Meridian's country music legend.
Folks back home in Australia tune into his station to hear Rodgers' classics. The Weedons are due to return to Australia on Sept. 8, on Doug Weedon's and Rodgers' birthday. "Every time I play one of his songs, I'll tell the listeners to come here and have a look," he said.
