Skeets Yaney, the vocalist of the famous “Skeets and Frankie” team, has been in radio for 19 years and has the unique distinction of having been sponsored for over 17 of those 19 years by the same client, the famous Jolly Irishman, Uncle Dick Slack. A familiar voice on radio station KMOX and the CBS Network for all those years, Skeeter’s formal billing has always been, “The Golden Voiced Yodeler.”

Born Clyde A. Yaney, 16 June 1912, Mitchell, Indiana, USA, d. 20 January 1978, USA. Playing guitar and harmonica, Yaney became very well known, owing in part to his skills as a songwriter and, chiefly, as a radio disc jockey. He also worked in a very popular double act with accordionist Frankie Taylor as Skeets and Frankie, singing hillbilly music on radio, chiefly on KMOX in St. Louis, Missouri. He secured the gig with KMOX by simply turning up at the studio at five in the morning, making himself available until seven, and then leaving and going to his day job on a local construction site.
