Cowboy Santa Claus
Gene Autry's Melody Ranch Radio Show
(December 22, 1946)

Gene Autry's Melody Ranch Radio show featured music by Gene Autry as well as other talented Western folks. In Gene's post World War II shows, the Cass County Boys and the Pinafores frequently performed together on the show and here they sing a rare holiday treat, "Cowboy Santa Claus."

That's Gene Autry and announcer Lou Crosby introducing the song and "the boys and girls."
