About The Artist

Dick Hiorns was a veteran performer who was written about in 1952 while he was with radio station WBAY in Green Bay, Wisconsin, doing radio, stage and night club work.

Prior to that he had played on stations in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, Findlay, Ohio and Kalamazoo, Michigan.

When he was in Green Bay, he had two shows. One was called "Morning On The Farm" that aired at 6:05 each morning and then he was on during the late afternoon from 4:00pm to 4:30pm on "The Dick Hiorns Show".

Around 1952, the Aristocrat label signed Dick up for some recordings. They said he had recorded such songs as "Cool Water", "They're Burning The House Down", "Teardrops In My Heart" for the label.

Dick served in the 34th Division during World War II that fought in Africa and Italy. When he was released from the Army, he resumed his career.
