Holiday Update from Gene Autry Entertainment
Posted December 3, 2022
It is hard to believe 2023 is around the corner! The challenges continued this year individually and for the world; however, I hope you have fared wel. It is good to see communities opening again and recovery taking place in many areas.
Here at Gene Autry Entertainment we have continued riding the trail on behalf of America's Favorite Singing Cowboy, Gene Autry. In addition to the day-to-day work, our focus has been on going through Gene's historical files and photographs. This important project was started some years ago with the restoration of Gene's movies to their full theatrical length and their subsequent release on DVD, spear-headed and carrying through in all its phases by Karla Buhlman. Working hand-in-hand with engineer, Bob Fisher, and music producer Cary Mansfield, Karla also ensured that Gene's music was preserved and released on CDs for future generations to enjoy.
As you can imagine, Gene has literally thousands of photographs many of which have been identified, scanned into the computer, put in acid free sleeves and placed in museum quality binders in various categories. Of course, we have many more photos to ID and research continues on identifying these photos. As a bonus we have been able to discover background information and event dates on photographs thus giving them greater historical context.
Too Early for Christmas Music?
Posted November 14, 2022
Did you notice the holiday gift-giving commercials during the World Series games? Are you bumping into the candy canes and chocolate Santas at the grocery store before the turkeys and stuffing? And did your local radio station start playing 24 hours of Christmas music this week? You might be saying, "It's too early for this! Back in my day we never heard Christmas songs on the radio before Thanksgiving!" Well…not so fast. America's Favorite Singing Cowboy, Gene Autry was performing Christmas music on his radio show before Thanksgiving and even before Halloween as far back as the 1940s. Check out when he introduced "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "Frosty the Snowman" and "White Christmas" on his weekly radio show here.
If all this festive holiday activity has you wanting to learn more about the stories behind Gene's iconic Christmas classics "Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)" and "Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer," then check out the Gene Autry's Cowboy Christmas section here.
