All Star Western Theater

Welcome to the Western Section. Come on into the bunkhouse and set a spell. After a hard day of herding cattle or riding in the Sherrif's posse a feller's gotta have a cup of hot coffee and maybe even strum a few tunes on a guitar.
Your sidekick can come in too, and let's talk Westerns. Besides, you never know who'll drop by.

All Star Western Theater

Post by frontrowkid »

If you wanted to know what cowboy stars the Front Row Kids of the Forties and Fifties went to see, check out All Star Western Theater which originated over KNX Los Angeles in the late Forties. Featuring the music of Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage, many episodes had a popular western star as guest. Johnny Mack Brown, Tex Ritter, Allan "Rocky" Lane, Smiley Burnette and Dale Evans all made appearances. The classic episode starred the Holt family: Jack, Tim and Jennifer. It was the only time they all appeared together. They did a short skit about how Jack returned home years after leaving his family. He helps Tim and Jennifer win back their ranch after Tim loses it in a card game. There is also a nice interview with all of them.
