8.25" x 10.25" Photo signed by Lee Moore.b. Walter LeRoy Moore, 24 September 1914, Circleville, Ohio, USA, d. 17 August 1997. He learned to play guitar (and later dobro) as a boy and first worked with the Yodelling Texas Cowboys, a travelling show. In the mid-30s, he sang with the Mountain Melody Boys, before moving to WRHS Charleston, as vocalist with Buddy Starcher's Mountaineers. After marrying Juanita Picklesimer (b. 1917), in 1938, he worked as a duo with his new wife. For many years, they proved a popular act on various radio stations, including WHIS Bluefield and WHMN Fairmont, West Virginia, WSVA Harrisonburg, Virginia, WROL Knoxville, Tennessee and WPAQ Mount Airey, North Carolina, before arriving at WWVA West Wheeling, in 1949, where they became regulars on the Wheeling Jamboree. Moore always portrayed the cowboy image (he even wore a pair of Colt revolvers on stage) but their repertoire was wide and varied from popular ballads and country songs to religious numbers at which Juanita excelled. Their young son, Roger Lee Moore (b. 1940), also appeared with them from a very early age. Between 1953 and 1969, quite apart from his performing, Moore also presented a four-hour late night country music programme on WWVA, which gained him the nickname of the Coffee Drinking Night Hawk. They made their first recordings in 1953 and Moore became popular for his version of 'The Cat Came Back', which he used as a signature tune.
