About the Disc Jockey / Emcee
No one likes to follow the first that started a tradition, but
it did fall to Walter "Pat" Patterson to follow where Howard
Donohoe left. The Jamboree continued to grow and Pat kept the listeners
with his friendly personality and even had a fine singing voice.
He moved on to other fields, per the 1942 WWVA Jamboree song folio,
but '...left an indelible something that speaks as a silent partner
to those who carry on.'
