Cliffie Stone’s Hometown Jamboree – KXLA Pasadena


Mike Cherry, in his “Lost Treasures “Catfish Boogie” post of May 8, 2020, lamented the lack of air checks for Tennessee Ernie Ford, so here’s one.

It’s “Ol’ Ern” on Cliffie Stone’s Hometown Jamboree which aired Monday, July 4, 1949, over KXLA 1110 AM Pasadena.

Cliffie had various shows with live entertainment, live commercials and live audiences on various Southern California radio stations during the 1940’s. He had an ensemble cast of many, including Merle Travis and his wife Judy Hayden, Molly Bee, Eddie Kirk, Bucky Tibbs, Terry Preston (before he began performing under his real name, Ferlin Husky), and even Cliffie’s father, who picked and sang as Herman the Hermit.
