Country Western Singer
Al Vunovich was the guitarist and the only Kansas Citian in the Ramblers group... And had been heard in and maybe the only native Kansas Citian in television... And had been heard in and around these parts for some fifteen years, having appeared on KCMO, KDRO, (Sedalia) and others. He worked with Bob Wells in 1936, and for The Harvest Hands in 1948 and the Ramblers.
