The Old Cowboy a bit ago had a telephone conversation with a long time entertainment world friend. The subject of my early radio days came up and my first taste of working with a big time entertainer on stage. I had met Mel Tillis back in about 1970 and then in 1973 or 74 we put together a show at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma and hired Mel as the headliner. That night the entertainment bug bit me rather hard and it took a little over 30 years to get shows like that out of my system, along with country radio shows, rodeo announcing, and big time motor sports. Sooner or later you learn as I did that this is a world that is hear today and gone tomorrow. Yes, people will remember your name and a few will remember the shows, but that star finally fades and then goes out. Along the way if you are lucky you pick up a Bible and you learn about eternity, then you make the decision on where you are going to spend it. I enjoyed all of the excitement in the entertainment world, but what has stuck with me since about 1972, is teaching and Preaching God’s word and I’m not planning on quiting that.
