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?

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.

Cottonseed Clark -

January 14, 1992

Clark Fulks, a retired disc jockey who wrote for radio and television, has died at a Thousand Oaks hospital. He was 82.

Fulks, who moved to Thousand Oaks from Van Nuys six months ago, died of complications of a brain hemorrhage, said his wife, Mozelle Fulks.

Born in Paris, Tex., Fulks was a radio producer in New York before coming to California in the early 1940s. Fulks, who also used the name Cottonseed Clark, was master of ceremonies and writer for a weekly CBS radio show called "Cottonseed Clark's Hollywood Barn Dance" and later wrote radio skits for Gene Autry and the Andrews Sisters.

In 1952, he moved to Northern California to be a disc jockey at KEEN-AM in San Jose. Fulks also created, produced and wrote for the "California Hay Ride" television show in San Francisco during the 1950s.

He retired from radio in 1985 and moved to Van Nuys.
