Uh huh huh ooo ooo ooo !
In 1957, thanks to his job on the Autry show, Johnny Western started his career as an actor. Johnny has appeared in 37 features and western TV series. After an acting appearance on the CBS-TV series, "Have Gun-Will Travel," Johnny wrote and sang the theme song, "The Ballad of Paladin." He wrote the song as a musical thank you card to star, Richard Boone, for the way Boone helped him on the show in all their scenes together. Anyway, the turning point in his life came on his fifth birthday, when his parents took him to see a 1936 Western called Guns and Guitars starring Gene Autry; Well, I saw King Kong at the same age. Dammit.
