We remember Gene Autry (1907-1998)

Gene Autry was born in Tioga, Texas and grew up here and Oklahoma.   Where else would such a famous cowboy grew up?    

We remember him for songs and movies.    "Rudolph the red nosed reindeer" is the second all-time best selling Christmas single, i.e. 30 million copies.   He is the only entertainer to have all five stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one each for Radio, Recording, Motion Pictures, Television, and Live Theater performances.

And he owned the Angels, the AL baseball in Los Angeles.    Sadly, he never saw his Angels win the 2002 World Series.

Autry was one of the most famous people of the 20th century.
