BOB NOLAN AND THE SONS OF THE PIONEERS' TIMELINE

 

Bob Nolan and the Sons of the Pioneers Work Chronology

Deaths

 

Note: Though there are Roy Rogers radio shows listed, only those on which the SOP appeared are shown. This history applies to events in which Bob was with the Sons of the Pioneers and on his own. It is not a complete Sons of the Pioneers timeline through all members. There was much more so we have separate pages for the films and radio shows and personal biographies to show how busy they were. For the greatest detail, read Bob Nolan's biography.
