from www.nathandgibson.com A Personal Note: As part of my undergraduate songwriting thesis at Emerson College I had to write and record at least ten original songs under the supervision of New England cowboy legend Rex Trailer. On our first day of songwriting together we took a snack break and discovered that we were each chomping on Necco wafers. It was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. While writing songs, we learned that Kenny Roberts, the "Jumping Cowboy" and the "King of the Yodelers," was living nearby. Both Rex and Kenny were Massachusetts Country Music Hall of Famers. They each hosted children's television shows in the '50s and '60s and each had regularly performed with Bill Haley pre-Comets. And yet, they had never met. We invited Kenny to sing and yodel with us and we were overjoyed by his response. A few sessions were booked with backing from my friends in Boston's best rockin' bands: the Racketeers, Dave Aaronoff & the Details, the Bombastics, the Bourbonaires, the Kings of Nuthin', the Shods, the Stumbleweeds, and many more. And in case you were wondering, I got an A!
