I am so sorry to hear of Hal Spencer's passing. If any of his family reads this, you have my sincere condolences.

We like the website very much. We are in NC also. In Chapel Hill, as well. My son, a fan, wants to know what year it was that Bob Nolan narrated the opening of the Sons of the Pioneers slide show that we watched and listened to.

Thanks,

Lawrence Naumoff

 

Hello, Lawrence. You can tell your son that the piece I used was from the intro of one of the Teleways Radio Transcriptions (1947-8).

 

The Sons of the Pioneers have had some personnel changes recently. The new line-up is Dusty Rogers, John Fullerton, Paul Elliott, Tommy Nallie and Ken Lattimore. MC chores will be shared by Dusty and John. John Fullerton is a Sons' historian as well as an expert on any western stringed instrument.  Randy Rudd has retired, Mark Abbott and Justin Branham have been hired by Merle Haggard's son, Marty. We are assured that the unique Sons of the Pioneers harmony will continue as Lloyd Perryman arranged.

There is a Tim Spencer song, "Texas Trail", aka "Texas Trails", in the Roy Rogers movie "Eyes of Texas". Does anyone have the sheet music for it?

 

Texas Trail

(Tim Spencer)

 

The rollin’ range is callin’ to me

So let me ride along

The Texas trail.

Out on the plains there’s plenty to see, plenty to see

All nature sings a song

Along the trail.

 

High on a hill a coyote may be howlin’

To his mate who’s waitin’ near

In the chill of the night out on the prairie

Still it’s music to a cowboy’s ear.

 

The moon above will light up the way

For everyone who loves

The Texas trail.
