Johnny Winter TV Shows / Radio Bremen?

Don Mahoney and Jeana Claire show

Johnny's very first TV appearance was on a local childrens television show that aired in Houston and Beaumont markets called the Don Mahoney and Jeana Claire show. Don Mahoney was a blind singing cowboy/kiddie show host in the Houston area for many, many years. Jeana Claire was his sidekick and a former Louisiana Hayride backup singer. Their show ran in one form or another on Houston television from the early fifties all the into the late '80's (albeit reruns on Access Cable). Johnny and Edgar were on Don's show as boys of about 10 or 12 playing ukelele and singing. Unfortunately, while Don did save some kinescopes of his shows from the fifties, Johnny and Edgar's duo was not one of them..

The band is the Still Alive And Well formation. White Firebird used on all songs. Except for the intro song (Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo) where we notice a not-warmed-yet Johnny (I mean cliches riff), all the other songs are involve great solos (really inspired).
