About the Group

About The Group

He was one of the first artists to appear on WLS. Back in 1935, they said he had been a solo artist at WLS for ten years. Started off wanting to be a lawyer in Kansas, but turned to singing instead.

Back around 1941 or so, this new group called the Williams Brothers came on the scene with a style and became an instant hit with the listeners of WLS. They came from Iowa. They started singing at home in front of their family.

One of them is named Andy Williams. He kinda went on to bigger things later on in show business with his own variety show on television and a golf tournament that carries his name.
