'My acquaintance and friendship with Redd and Pee Wee began in the late 50's, when I was a regular on the Ozarak Jubilee. We became friends and worked many, many shows together, and in the later years, even booked them on some shows.
They were wonderful, talented people, and I've always said Redd was one of the most underrated people in the music business. The general public had no idea how good he was! It was a privilege to have known him.' (Leroy Van Dyke (Country Music Entertainer)
