I worked at the KCRGs in the early 60s and ran camera and audio on this show. Later I ran the audio for Johnny Ketelsen shows on TV-9. Good times! Sheriff Steve was Bill Grubbe whao was an on air DJ. Sourdo Sam was also a DJ and used the air name of Loose Tooth Knuth. I think his real first name was Jack. I am pretty sure of the names bug it has been a while. Doc Gruis.
I remember Sheriff Steve from my Cedar Rapids childhood in the early 60's. I have now lived in Texas 50+ years but Sheriff Steve was my first cowboy hero.
