Bill Bramlet

Bill Bramlet was a star in Texas in the 1950s, at one time known as "Kernel Wheat" of Bewley's Chuck-Wagon Gang.

Back then, he was doing two daily radio shows - one aired over WBAP out of Fort Worth, Texas and the other was over KCLE in Cleburne, Texas. In addition to his radio work, he did a Saturday night television show for WBAP-TV.

An article we found in 1953 relates a bit of his vocal stylings, "...really puts his heart and soul into his songs, while his yodel speaks of the distant hills and a star-spangled Western sky."

He wrote a couple of 'new' songs back then with Diane Johnston - "Ain't You Ashamed Of Yourself" and "You Can't Plant Roses In a Broken Heart". Some of you may recognize Diane Johnston for her song writing collaboration with Gene Autry on "Can't Shake The Sands of Texas From My Shoes" which Gene sang in the movie "Sons of New Mexico".
