Gabby made the most of his fifteen minute time slot. He would begin my welcoming all the buckaroos to his show. Anytime he made a broad statement about a subject he would always say, "...in the United States AND Texas." That was before Alaska came into the Union. So Texas was the biggest and to Gabby the best state in the nation (even though George Hayes was actually born in New York). As I recall (I was about nine years old at the time) the fifteen minutes were mainly devoted to Gabby's tall tales of the Old West and commercials. The tall tales, Gabby's magnetic personality and his amazing gift of gab were very appealing to youngsters of all ages, most of whom had seen him in action on the big screen.
