Tracing the career of Gene Autry, would cover film, music, songwriting, acting, performing, rodeo and much more.
He is remembered as the original singing cowboy, and for his many Christmas holiday songs.
In 1946, Autry was Grand Marshal of the Santa Claus Lane Parade, and as he rode, he heard people shout, “Here Comes Santa Claus!”
This inspired him to write the song, which has become a classic favorite.
Join me next Saturday, December 23, at 9:20 for more with Gene Autry.
