Spud Murphy what musical legends have you known (128* d) RE: what musical legends have you known 25 Mar 01


Deckman: I got to Alaska in 1950, so I guess I missed Bill Higley in passing. I did, however know Harry McClintock, or rather, I saw him from time to time at KFRC studio in San Francisco and KFBK in Sacramento. My dad, known as Yankee Mac, was a sometimes competitor of 'Haywire Mac' McClintock in the 1929-32 years and I would sometimes get to go to the studio with him. McClintock 'belonged' to KFRC and my dad was the 'property' of KFBK, so to speak, but they were good friends in reality and occasionally filled for each other. That was just before studio policy changed so that the entertainers had to find their own sponsors. Before that, entertainers like McClintock and my Dad were paid directly by the studios.

So here's one for Bill, and Happy Memories!!
