One copy is preserved at The Wilson Library in the Daniel W. Patterson and Beverly Bush Patterson Papers (Southern Folklife collection). That's the only reference to The Joyfullairs found online.

Jerry Plemmons, (with two Ms), born in 1938, was at the time director of programming of WMMH, Marshall, NC. WMMH switched in 1964 to full-time country and gospel format, only station in the area with such a policy. An interview of Jerry Plemmons can be found HERE.

Rev. Ed Stines served the West Side Baptist Church (Winston Salem) as pastor from 1988 to 1991. He died in 2001.

Also, in 1956, Ed Stines from Morganton, N.C. (who may be or not the same man) shooted to death his wife's persistent suitor. He was then 19-years old.
