Ralph Emery - Biography

Walter Ralph Emery (born March 10, 1933) is a country music disc jockey and television host from Nashville, Tennessee. He gained national fame hosting the syndicated television music series, Pop! Goes the Country, from 1974 to 1980 and the nightly Nashville Network television program, Nashville Now, from 1983 to 1993. Emery can currently be seen hosting the weekly program, Ralph Emery Live, on RFD-TV, a satellite and cable television channel devoted to rural American culture.
Emery first earned fame as the late-night disc jockey on Nashville's WSM. Due to the clear-channel broadcasting range of the station at night, Emery's country music show could be heard over most of the Eastern and Central U.S.-- and by many overnight long-haul truck drivers, who were often fans of country music. The all-night show was a mecca for country music stars of all kinds, many of whom were personal friends of Emery. One in particular was singer and movie star, and Nashville resident, Tex Ritter. Ritter actually co-hosted the show with Emery for a while. Many well-known stars, most notably Marty Robbins, would often drop in unannounced.

In 2001, Emery attempted a television comeback on Nashville Fox affiliate WZTV, but only spent seven days on the air before being sidelined first by continuing coverage of the September 11 attacks and then an illness. Substitute host Charlie Chase, a former WSM disc jockey in his own right, took over Tennessee Mornings permanently. In October 2005, Emery launched The Nashville Show, a free weekly webcast with Shotgun Red as co-host.
