  • After the Lincoln Jamboree’s 55th anniversary show Saturday, Joel Ray Sprowls parked himself in a tall cloth chair backstage and put his feet on a worn leather footstool.

That total doesn’t include an occasional 53rd Saturday resulting from a well-timed leap year, the travel shows and county fairs or the 26 weekly television done on long ago Thursday nights in Bowling Green.
