Tim Spencer left the Pioneers in September of 1936. The group had previously called on Lloyd Perryman to fill in whenever one of the Pioneers was ill. In 1936 he had filled in for six weeks when Len Slye was down with pneumonia so, when Tim left, the Pioneers asked Lloyd to join the group permanently. The Sons of the Pioneers are responsible for all the music in the next 27 films.

When the Sons of the Pioneers finished recording for the Standard Records Transcriptions, they made a party record called "Sweet Violets" in 1936. Tim Spencer took the solo parts. The flip side was a song by Oscar and Elmer, a popular comedy team.

 

The "Castration of the Strawberry Roan" by Dick Foran and the Sons of the Pioneers with Dick Foran singing the lead. The SOP appeared in some of Foran's movies in the 30s and now, in 1942, they were doing a radio program with Dick - Dr. Pepper's 10-2-4 Ranch. The song was written by Curley Fletcher, who wasn't proud of it because he'd written some great songs he preferred to be remembered for. (One of them was "Desolation" that he wrote with Bob Nolan.) Anyway, in 1943, they were asked to appear before the Dr. Pepper's annual stockholders' and board of directors' meeting held in New York City and were requested to sing the original, clean song, "Strawberry Roan" which was the favorite song of the company's president. The SOP did not know the words. So at their rehearsal, someone came up with Curley's bawdy version, "The Castration of the Strawberry Roan". Later in the week, the SOP went to a studio and recorded it, using the words from the manuscript that had been given to them. You can hear Pat Brady and Hugh Farr at the end. For years after, it was sold in plain wrapper from under the counter of music stores.
