'I did meet and work one show with Pee Wee King and Redd Stewart. It was on, or around New Year's Day in 1957 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I was traveling with Rusty and Doug Kershaw on our way from Louisiana to Wheeling, West Virginia.
Pee Wee had booked Rust and Doug to play a show with him in Fort Wayne. He didn't have the Golden West Cowboys intact at that time and Rusty and Doug, along with their band filled in as Pee Wee's band.
I was part of the group. It was a thrill for me. At the time I was about 20 years old. Pee Wee took some pictures that night and promised to send some to us but we never got them, I'm sorry to say. (Sonny Oden/Canada)
