Ropin' fun with Johnny Crawford
This picture was taken to promote KTLA's Melody Ranch on December 20, 1965.
Welcoming Johnny was host of the popular country-western show Billy Mize, and regulars Joan de Ville, Johnny Bond, Carl Cotner & the Melody Ranchers, and the Cass Country Boys.
In addition to these regulars, the Melody Ranch format included from one to several guests each week, such as Rex Allen, Hank Penny & Johnny Crawford. Gene Autry himself appeared occasionally. It was later syndicated as Gene Autry's Melody Ranch, cut down to 52 color half-hour programs.
