When he was in Lebanon, he was playing in several different bands, local
He had a show every Saturday morning over WLBN. Then he'd appear again
at 1:00pm on the "Jimmie Taylor Show".
They made a point to mention that he was not married - even though he
was only sixteen at the time. We guess they wanted to make sure the girls
knew he hadn't been snatched up yet.
