Although he do sometimes play on various other channels, specifically in Wisconsin and Iowa, he committed the majority of his profession to theBarn Dance program. When the program shifted from WLS to WGN in 1960, he shifted with it and remained until theNational Barn Dance finally shut in 1969, showing up frequently in the televised part of the present from 1963 to the finish.
