Ranch Radio Song Of The Day #1645
Max H., a Ranch Radio subscriber said he enjoyed the Hank Week, and that "You can never seem to go wrong with a Hank or a Johnny in country music" and suggested a Johnny Week. I'm happy to oblige with Johnny Bond & His Red River Valley Boys - Saddle Serenade. The tune was recorded in Hollywood in 1944 and is available on his CD Country & Western: Standard Transcriptions. That was quite a group. In addition to Bond there was Jimmy Wakely, Wesley Tuttle, Merle Travis, Dick Reinhart and Paul Sells.
