July 26, 2020 WRFG Route 66 - He's A Solid Sender!

Playing tracks by

Wayne Raney.

This week, we pay tribute to Roy Milton, born Roy Bunny Milton in Wynnewood, Oklahoma on July 31, 1907. Milton started his musical career in Tulsa. In 1933, Milton moved to Los Angeles and founded the Roy Milton Trio with Camille Harris on piano. The band expanded and became the Solid Senders in the mid-1940s. Milton was gifted with many talents. He was a drummer, a singer, a songwriter, a bandleader, and a businessman. He founded his own Milton Records and recorded early sides by Roy Brown and others.
