Eleven o'clock, you'll feel some of the best singin' and preachin' you've ever heard in your life and felt in your life. They'll uplift ya and love ya. .Home of The Fabulous Superlatives, that's our church. That's right. Speakin' of the biggest cathedral in anybody's heart. Here it comes, the Sultan of Goodlettsville, ladies and gentlemen, Connie, the ole Tennessee Slicker, why don't we just adopt him." Connie said, "We did." Marty continued, "We did. All right. Ladies and gentlemen, without further adieu, the great Leroy Troy. Come here, Leroy. There ya go, Constance. Well all right. I owe you a big ole thank you."

Leroy: "For what."

Marty: "When me and Connie first started courtin'......"

Leroy: "Yup."

Marty: "I wrote a song. A romantic song to try to get her to marry me. And I needed a romantic voice to sing it to her and I called you, didn't I."

Leroy: "You sure did."

Marty: "Tells it like it is, too."

Leroy: "Yes, it's a wonderful song, Marty and I tell ya what. I'm gonna need a tenor singer but Lonesome Lester Armistead and Little Mikey's gone to Newport, Tennessee to take care of some business today. But I've got the next best thing."

Marty: "Who is it."

Leroy: "Handsome Harry Stinson."

Marty: "Well, that's right. There he stands right there. Handsome, come in and sing. What's the name of the song, Leroy?"

Marty: "Beautiful."

Leroy: "All right."

Marty said, "Fine job, Handsome. Still married." Eddie Stubbs said, " 'Sailing Around The Moon (With Pretty Little Constance June)'. I wonder if the folks at NASA know that Connie's been implemented into the space program. We'll have to make sure they get a record of that there. Leroy's got that on a great record too as a matter of fact. Well, it's time to get serious with ya right now and we'd like to declare hymn time this week.
