He could be heard on the early morning
shows or at noon and occasionally on the Barn Dance. He brought
some choice backwoods humor of the old South to his performances.
They said he often got asked, "Is that his natural voice or is he
just putting on?" He was a natural.
Had a unique description of his 'potato-floater', but we don't know
what that was. He was quite a philosopher on top of being a comedian.
He also used his comedy talents on occasion as the master of ceremonies
for the Barn Dance show. His '...uncertain voice wends its way
through side-splitting comedy ever Saturday night.'
Back around 1939, he had his own program called "Buttram's Palatial
Palace of Wonders."
