Moriss Taylor

The Moriss Taylor Show

The Moriss Taylor Show was one of the longest-running locally-produced television shows in history. Hosted by longtime radio personality and producer Moriss Taylor, the show (based in Chico, California) was a weekly country music-variety staple featuring such musicians as Charlie Robinson, Yvonne Haygood, Bill Tieg, Mark Alstatt and Rosie Mello. It also featured voiceover talent Ron Palmer and news reporter Rick Rigsby, both now ex- station employees.

The show started in 1956, three years after the launch of its host television station KHSL-TV. It was broadcast on KHSL-TV from 1956 through 1995 and is now being seen in reruns on Saturday mornings at 10:00am on KRVU-TV in Chico and Sunday mornings at 9:30am on KFBI-TV in Medford, Oregon.

The show's closing theme song is "High Sierra", written and sung by Moriss himself, which has become synonymous with the show and its host. It now serves as the closing theme of his radio show on KHSL-FM 103.5 The Blaze.
