Volume 1 of The Roy Rogers Show! A cowboy singer and actor, Roy Rogers was one of the most popular Western stars of the twentieth century. Appearing in over one hundred films, and numerous television and radio appearances, he became known as the “King of the Cowboys”, the embodiment of the all-American hero to many. Roy was often joined by his wife, Dale Evans, “the Queen of the West”, as well as his famous golden palomino Trigger, which was known for his ability to do tricks. Roy Rogers’ radio show ran for nine years before moving to television in 1951. Originally having a western music and variety format, the show later introduced storylines involving outlaws, tall tales or cliffhangers involving a deed to a ranch, but no matter what the story, there was always time for a light-hearted song or two.
