Chuck Carson (7th post)

Chuck Carson postcard from the KSTP Sunset Valley Barn Dance

From an old radio station collection.  This is probably the final posting of Chuck Carson, as I don't know of any more records he made in Minnesota.  He apparently moved to California in the 1960s to work for the Fender Stratocaster company.  His daughter told me he was injured while driving on a mountain road and got caught in a landslide, and died not long after (in 1969) of respiratory complications from the accident.

A true Minnesota original.

Yes, there are apparently other records that exist, but I've never seen them. Any info always helps in my search, or if you actually have them, send them along and I'll post them and promise to return them post-haste.

thanks for visiting
