Benjamin "Whitey" Ford (1901-1986), professionally known as the DUKE OF PADUCAH, was one of country music's first hillbilly comedians. A longtime member of the Grand Ole Opry, The Duke of Paducah began his career in the early-1920s, as a banjo player and vocalist for the McGinty Cowboys which was later renamed Otto Gray and His Oklahoma Cowboys. Dressed in western outfits and white ten-gallon hats, the band became one of the most successful country and western acts of the 1920s and '30s, introducing such now-classic tunes as "She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain", "Who Broke The Lock On The Henhouse Door" and "The Cowboy's Lament". JENKS "TEX" CARMAN (1903-1968), who played a Hawaiian guitar, was also known as "The Dixie Cowboy". A regular performer on the country music showcase Town Hall Party, his songs include "Hillbilly Hula", "The Caissons Go Rolling Along" and "Locust Hill Rag". After a nearly 40 year career in music, he released his final album The Ole Indian in 1962. George R. Sanders, originally a disc jockey, became a prominent radio/TV interview host, first in Los Angeles and later in Portland. Lightly yellowed. File nicked at right edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
