Don Smith Gospel Favorites

Every Sunday 7:30 to 8:30

The Gospelaires, live on the air at KMJ, beginning September 1947!
(L-R)Ron Smith(back toward camera), Don Smith, James Farmer, Ray Cooper (at piano), unidentified guitarist. Don would have daily radio programs on KMJ, and two more on Sunday from that point (Oct. 1947) until 1968, when he went to a single program on Sundays only. That Sunday program remains on KMJ to this very day, transitioning over the years from live music in the studio to recordings, and remaining a KMJ programming staple for all those years, hosted today by Don’s daughter Earline Starnes.
