WDEL Wilmington Delaware
WDEL Tex Larraine
This is an old, real photo postcard, postmarked on July 13, 1939 from North East Maryland and mailed to Mrs Russell Virdin in Magnolia Delaware. (Russel Verdin of Magnolia was Son of Olin Verdin Sr. and Nettie Artis Virdin of Hartly, Kent County Delaware).
This old card features the "Range Riders" shown behind a WDEL microphone. The Range Riders consisted of Hank, Tex, Slim, Shorty, and Cheyenne. Tex was the leader, but I can't make out his last name... Tex Larraine, Tex Lorraine, Tex Larraime, Laramie (?).
"Cheyenne" was Eddie Woods (Edward Woods) of Cheyenne Wyoming.
I wonder if this was WDEL the radio station or WDEL the TV station in Wilmington Delaware?
Does anybody remember the Range Riders?

WDEL has a blog as well, so check that out too (although none of these characters have posted anything on there lately).
