NOTE: BILLBOARD Saturday 10th August 1946-Dude Martin is really “a’straddle his saddle again” with a 55-minute daily broadcast over KYA, San Francisco, and a Pacific Coast network sustainer coming up for ABC. Dude surprised Herb Caen, San Francisco nitelife columnist and western music critic, by extending his Persian Room contract at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel for 22 weeks.
NOTE: BILLBOARD Saturday 12th October 1946-Dude Martin, with a 4.8 Hooperating tucked glowingly in his belt, is moving his Radio Roundup show from Monday to Sunday nights at 8:30 (PDT) over the ABC Coast network. Martin’s success in this spot is a tribute to KGO, San Francisco, executives who recognize the popularity of Western and folk music. Move forces Dude to discontinue his Sunday night barn dance at the Persian Room, of the Hotel Sir Francis Drake, where he has played for 18 weeks.
