Billy is a great pal of mine and we chat by email most every day.
Billy loves collecting magazines of Gene Autry and he.s the author of a book about local theater palaces in Denison, Texas, where he currently lives. He also has a great past of singing and has done many recordings of his songs. He did some singing at the Gene Autry, Oklahoma Festival in September 2004 (Gene Autry's Birthday weekend.)
Billy has a grandson, Jake, who he loves dearly. Billy is turning him in to a Gene Autry fan.
Over the past few years Billy has done many more booklets on Gene Autry and the theaters. Check out the pictures below.
