Clarence Eugene “Hank” Snow was born on May 9, 1914, in the sleepy fishing village of Brooklyn, Queens County, on Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore just down the tracks from Liverpool.

His professional career started in 1933 with his own show on Halifax’s CHNS Radio. He changed his name to “Hank, The Yodeling Ranger” because it sounded more Western. Throughout the 1930s and ’40s, he toured the Maritimes and Western Canada, playing at county fairs and local radio stations.
