About The Group

A 1956 article mentions their career had taken them to playing several radio shows a week over a Central Pennsylvania station - from 8:30 to 10:15am, Saturdays from 9:05am and again Monday through Saturday at 1:15pm. A 1950 listing of Where the Acts were playing back then shows them playing over WPLH out of Huntington, West Virginia. The duo were known for their hymns among other things - the article mentions they always did one on their show. Perhaps fans might wonder if Bob McNett was a part of the legendary Drifting Cowboys band that backed Hank Williams.
