Release Info: Bill Cason's Arkansas Troopers - Radio Transcriptions
This here's a full 45 minute radio show of Bill Cason's Arkansas Troopers recorded in 1952-53 at possibly radio station WWL New Orleans. I don't have much info on either the band or the recording so I'll post any updates I can dig up. I believe Bill Cason recorded on the Coral label in the 50s and the steel guitarist is the great but sadly unknown Johnny Bonvillian. This is the first of two shows we will be sharing. If I was to compare Cason's band to any other of the time I guess Billy Jack Wills & His Western Swing Band would be about right.
I'm not sure of the original source of these transcriptions. They've been handed down a few times. Thank you who ever you are!
