In the mid-1950s Don was being heard over KMBC and KFRM out of
Kansas City, Missouri. Back then, he was one of the bright new
stars on the hillbilly music horizon. He stood about 6'4" and 180 pounds
Don was one of the featured stars on the "Brush Creek Follies" that
aired over KMBC on Saturday nights. When he was on stage, he did some
singing, accompanying himself with his guitar and did some comedy bits.
He recorded on the MGM label and one of his releases was "Only a Fool
Would Care" and "I'm Movin' To Tennessee".
