dc.description.abstractIn the fall of 1952, and well on into 1953, the nation's radio airwaves and jukeboxes were filled with the sound of "Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes." The song, penned by Abilene disc jockey Slim Wallet, was all the rage with four different versions in Billboard's Country & Western Top 10. On Billboard's Pop chart, Perry Como took the song to Number 1, selling over one million copies.
