Happy Jack Turner

Sadly, Hank passed away on Oct 19, 2014. He will be missed by his many customers and friends, and his contribution to OTR was significant.

Has anyone heard of Happy or Hobo Jack Turner? They called him 'The Singing Pianist' or 'Black Keys Turner'

Yes, I remember him from a 15 minute daily radio show on a Denver station. (late 40's ?) KOA? KVOD?

For some reason his theme song popped into my head this morning so I did a search for him.

How can I get a recording of Happy Jack Turner singing "Good Morning. Good Morning" He was a regulat member of the family breakfast routine. I think he was on KOA AM in Denver.

Hi there! Thanks Harlow for your reply on Happy Jack Turner. I am still looking for the name of his morning show in Denver, but I do know that when he was working in Chicago, he was involved with Fibber McGee and Molly in some way. As soon as I find the name of his show, I will post again. In the meantime if anybody knows, please chime in!
