Bud Messner got his start in radio at a radio station in Alexander,
Louisiana in 1938. He played at several other stations in the south
before finding his way to WJEJ in Hagerstown, Maryland, where he
stayed for nearly five years. From there, he moved to WCHA in
Chambersburg, Pennsylvania and was still there by mid-1951.
You can ready further about Bud Messner and the Skyliners in a separate
entry of this database. This listing is to encompass the WWVA Jamboree
listing them as an act together along with the Skyliners.
No mention was made of whether this was a husband-wife act.
