Monday Music – Kansas City Star

“Hey Torey! The kids are here!”

How many times did we rush to plop our little butts down in front of the television when we heard those words?

Roger Miller was in the throws of an up and down career when he penned the words to “Kansas City Star” in 1965. The song became a Top Ten hit on the country charts.  It was written about Torey Southwick, the emcee of a local children’s show on after school each weekday afternoon, and again on Saturday mornings.  Torey reigned over Kansas City for many years.

Remember Saturday morning cartoons?
