Evelyn Fullerton and family will present a musical program about her father, Earl “Chick” Allen, a pioneer of Branson’s entertainment and tourism industry, March 14 at the White River Valley Historical Society’s quarterly meeting.

The meeting will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the Historical Society Museum, 297 Main Street, Forsyth.

Chick Allen was an original member of the Baldknobbers Jamboree, one of the first public relations representatives for Silver Dollar City, and owner of his own attraction, the former Wash Gibbs Museum, on Hwy. 76 at the Taney-Stone County line. Allen played the jawbone of a mule among other instruments. He was also an expert on home remedies and lectured on Ozark medicinal roots and herbs at Washington University in St. Louis and William Jewel College near Kansas City.

Evelyn Fullerton, Allen’s eldest daughter, will lead a group of family members and guests in a musical tribute. Family members include granddaughters Judy Fullerton Rice and Jewelene Mabe, grandsons Jim Fullerton and Barry Mabe, and great grandson John Fullerton. Guest musicians are Jim Glaspy, Katey Glaspy and Louis Darby.
Jig dancing is also part of the tribute.

The Vacation Channel Upgrades to High-Definition

Posted In: City News by BroadcastBranson.com


After many years of planning, research and development, The Vacation Channel is now broadcasting in high-definition. Your favorite programming from “Branson’s Televised Tour Guide for over 20 years,” The Vacation Channel, can now be received over the air with this high-definition upgrade on digital channel 36-1. The Vacation Channel will also continue to broadcast our analog channel 38 for a time, to allow our viewers to make the transition smoothly. That analog signal on channel 38 will be going away soon, so to continue receiving The Vacation Channel, you will need to retune your digital television or digital converter box, to our new digital channel 36-1.

If you have questions about picking up either of our broadcast signals during our upgrade, please don’t’ hesitate to contact us at The Vacation Channel and be sure to log on to our website, www.viewbranson.com for more exciting news and updates along the way.

The Vacation Channel, Inc. is Branson’s television station. Locally owned and operated, The Vacation Channel has provided quality vacation and weather information along with award-winning locally produced programs since 1989. Broadcast over the air on analog channel 38 and now digital channel 36-1, and carried on many area cable systems, the television station serves Taney and Stone counties in the tri-lakes region, as well as our recent expansion into the communities of Nixa, Ozark, and Highlandville on the SuddenLink cable system in Christian County.
