In early 1954, a live country stage show entered the picture. Produced by Peggy O'Riley, the "Western Star's Serenade" was held in Tyler, Texas. A small portion of the show - only 15 minutes - was taped and broadcastet seperately on KGKB (Tyler, Texas). The emcee work was handled by Ed Smith, DJ at KGKB.
Part of the show were:
• Jerry Hanson, he recorded some rockabilly for the Starday custom label, Manco and Blubonnet Records from Forth Worth
• Dorothy Hanson, maybe related to Jerry?
• James Fuller
• Roscoe Clark
• Western Star Serenaders, house band of the show
If anyone else has more info on the show, please pass it along!
