One was at 5:30am to 6:15am; the other from 11:15am to 11:55am that included the Willis Brothers and Tommy Sosebee. He also appeared with them each Tuesday and Thursday over television station WTVM from 7:00pm to 7:30pm.

By then, he was already a well-travelled, seasoned entertainer for they indicated he had performed in 36 of the states.
