By 1938, Roy Rogers had established himself as both a movie star and a singing star! He and his second wife, Dale Evans made the perfect radio and TV cowboy/cowgirl couple! Audiences felt like they knew them and cheered them on each week when they would save some poor soul or souls from robbers and con men in the old west.
Roy’s radio show lasted 11 seasons and the Roy Rogers Show On TV stayed on the air for 6 seasons! Roy also made a ton of movies and appeared on numerous other radio and TV shows as a guest star! In addition, Roy had a successful recording career for several years with songs that made it to the top of the charts! His, perhaps, best known song was “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” although most people probably remember him and Dale Evans singing “Happy Trails to You” at the end of each show!
