Ted Buchanan was a native of Ravenswood, West Virginia. We found out
from a souvenir folio of Shorty Fincher and his Cotton Pals a bit of his
career. He said he first started his radio work on WWVA in 1929 when
he was with the "Hawaiian Rose Trio" and playing the Hawaiian guitar.
After that, he played at various stations in the United States and
Canada. Besides playing the Hawaiian guitar, he also played the musical
hand saw, bass fiddle and straight guitar. His hobbies were fishing,
hunting and skating.
