Don Kent had an idea for a program called "Ranch Party" and it took
him about a year or so, but along about mid-1954, he found a spot for
it on WJBF-TV out of Augusta, Georgia. Don, like many artists of that
time, spent some time in military service. Earlier in his career
he could have been heard over WCSH out of Portland, Maine. And later,
he was part of WCOP's Hayloft Jamboree.
Don was noted as saying his "Ranch Party" idea was catching on all
across the nation back then. And one of the fellows teaming with him
on this concept was his manager-buddy, Ray King.
