Mike. I grew up right in Roanoke, but my mornings were the same. Do you remember Channel 7's Irvin Sharpe. He played the organ on that show and was the host of sorts. Don Reno would dress up in some wild costume and sit at the organ with Irvin and do a skit. Didn't Don call himself "Chicken Hot Rod"? And do you remember when Irvin Sharpe was getting us to drink Dr. Pepper HOT in the winter time?
About a year ago, I found a great picture of Don and Earl pickin' together on stage in 1955. Ronnie Reno told me in a personal Email that his father and Earl were great friends and really enjoyed each others company. He also said Don Reno always had very nice things to say about Earl and that he really liked Earl. He also said Don and Earl were great friends with Ralph Stanley.
