Q & A
When he was a boy, Jerry and his family sang together for fun, with Jerry’s mother playing piano. When Jerry’s mother was a young woman she performed as a featured act on a C & W radio station in St. Louis, Missouri. “Whatever talent I have I got from Mom,” says Jerry.
Jerry started singing professionally as a teenager. He was on a show with a country music promoter as a featured part of his cast and did rock and roll. They had a live TV show in the San Franciso/Oakland Bay Area and it was followed up with a huge live show and dance Saturday nights.
