Lance's passion started in college at Georgia State University where he worked at WRAS radio.  

He realized a person could not go to a record store and buy music from the 1920s and '30s.  Since then he has made it his mission to research, find, and remaster rare recordings of this time period.

Typically nominated in the historical album categories, Ledbetter goal is to preserve the history of this time.
