Jack Wallace swings across the screen on a rope in this advertisement for "The Uncle Jay Show." "The Uncle Jay Show" aired on Austin television network KTBC from 1953 until 1977. The children's program, filmed in front of a live studio audience, was hosted by Jay Hodgson with assistance from Jack Wallace and Willard Dyer. The show frequently featured puppets – one of which was operated by Wally Pryor.
Known to many as the "Voice of the Longhorns," Wally Pryor served as the announcer for UT sports from 1953 until 2002. While his voice was certainly recognizable he also played an active role as a producer – for KTBC, amongst others – and regularly served as an emcee for various events. Wally regularly worked as a producer for his older brother Richard "Cactus" Pryor. The films in the Wally Pryor collection represent a range of films from home movies, to various pieces he produced, films featuring himself, and several films featuring Cactus Pryor.
