Don Kidwell
and His Red River Valley Boys
WWVA Original Jamboree
WWVA Wheeling, WV

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 back then.

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".
