Take yourself back to Madison, Wisconsin in 1951 and you'd be hearing
Bobby Hodge, the "Rainbow Ranger" over WKOW every Saturday for 30 minutes.
His show was definitely a hit with the sponsors for they mentioned he
had no less than eight sponsors for his show.
One of Bobby's influences was the legendary Hank Williams and he often
featured Hank's tunes on his show. Bobby was also a part of the "Dairyland
News" stage shows that were common in southern Wisconsin during that era.
When he found the time, he also played guitar with Stu Wilson's Orchestra
