Garage Sale Finds part 2

As I said last time, I visited a garage sale right down my own street and they had loads of vintage goodies to offer.
Now, some of you may know that I LOVE old time country music.  I have downloaded many radio programs such as WLS National Barn Dance and some Grand Ole Opry episodes from 1939.  There was even a 10-2-4 Ranch show (sponsored by Doctor Pepper, hence the title) that played country music.  Some of my favorite performers are Hank Snow, Kitty Wells, Hank Williams, Johnny Horton...the list goes on and on.
So, when I spotted this I knew it would really help me to know these performers better!  It's like it was meant to be! 
There are two autographs on the back, but I really can't make out the names.  They are most likely band members, from someone's show...who knows, but they are kind of cool.
This is a souvenir program, so there are little write-ups on many of the country stars of the day.  Funny, there is NO DATE on this program and that drives me nuts!  There is one hint!  In Grandpa Jones' write-up they say he is a "youngster" of 41.  So I did some figuring and Grandpa Jones turned 41 in October of I'm guessin' this booklet is most likely from late 1954-1955.

I just love all the neat photos!
Then, I finally found a little travel alarm clock.  I've wanted one for quite some time and IT WORKS!  My dad showed me how to wind it up and set the alarm and turn it off again.  It's a loud little bugger, but it will be fun to use sometime.
Well, I think that is everything we found at the little garage sale down the street.  It was a great day!
I'll leave you now with one of my favorites by Kitty Wells. It's an old, old video, therefore the video quality is a little strange, but the sound quality is pretty good.  ENJOY!
Until another time, ya'll have a happy vintage day!
