(A&R man, 1889–1986)

Arthur Satherley was a pioneering A&R man for several important record companies from the 1920s, responsible for scouting and recording a vast array of country and blues performers. Among these were two important figures whose careers the British-born Satherley helped particularly to shape and steer – Bob Wills and Gene Autry. A legend himself by the 1940s, he essentially retired from producing in the early 1950s. He was elected to the Country Music Hall Of Fame in 1971.
