How is the flip on the Bill Carter 45 ? (Ride Gunman, Ride)
Don (trip dub):
Hi Rex - diggin' the show. Settin' me up for the Sun tribute at LCOD.
Listening as always from sweden, best regards an Icelander in sweden
Today's set feels a bit like The Purple Knif Show - some songs on today's FP in common with Lux Interior's legendary DJ set. A nice touch, whether intentional or serendipitous. You is a hip cat, Rex, you gotcher boots on! Why don' somebody TELL me these things?
Mantan Moreland was good, but he couldn't hold a candle next to Willie Best!

Bill Carter was a native of Eagleton, Arkansas, but his family moved to Broken Bow, Oklahoma when he was eight years old. In 1943, the Carter family, (who were a farming family) moved out west to California to the town of Idaho, which was where Bill got his start as a professional singer.
He got his first how over station KREO, where he performed until entering the U.S. Air Force in 1950. Even while in the service, he managed to keep up his singing while stationed in San Antonio, Texas.
1952 saw him transferred to a military base near the Bay area in northern California. There, he met up with folks such as Cottonseed Clark and Big Jim De Noon. When he was discharged in 1953, he had a recording contract with the 4 Star label. He also appeared a few times on Cottonseed Clark's television show called "The Hoffman Hayride". (AKA The Spade Cooley Show) on KTLA.
