Throwback - Roger Miller

Thank you JNJ for another fantastic Throwback posts about one of my favorites.

Here's to one of the Good Guys. Born in Fort Worth, raised in Oklahoma, Roger Miller was just a good ole boy. Although he passed in 1992, he brought so much joy to so many people. A man of many talents, he wrote many songs for other people and also had his own TV show. He wrote a Broadway play called "Big River," which was his adaptation of Huckleberry Finn1 He was full of humor in his music, and his scat singing made everyone smile.

Read up on Roger and enjoy this music. Another Texas-born talent!
