My good friend Larry Zwisohn sent me this photo and asked when Dad (Roy Rogers) learned to play the piano? I guess that seeing Dad sitting on the piano bench while he sings away gave Larry the idea that Dad knew what he was doing.

I thought that Larry knew everything about Dad and his musical skills. But, I had to tell him that the reason Pat and Tim have their fingers in their ears and Bob is laughing, is that Dad didn’t play piano at all.

    Now that I look closely at the picture, I can see that ears are being plugged. I’m sure they’ve plugged their ears because of his playing certainly not because of his singing. Always a devoted fan of your dad

    When I was six years young I was on my way to my friend’s home to play Cowboys! On the way over I told my friend “I’m Roy Rogers”! That same year
    My parents took me to see Nighttime in Nevada! I saw this movie in color and I remember I had a big smile on my face!
    Over the years I collected many Roy Rogers memorabilia! I also took my son
    to collect comic books and sport cards!
    And that is the reason I have a big collection!
    I started The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans fan club on Facebook three years ago and I found other Roy Rogers fan groups and other Western heroes on Facebook!
    There were some Roy Rogers Restored color movies put on youtube and then removed! Can someone tell me what happened to these movies? The Restored Golden Stallion looked 3D!

      Sorry, Stuart. I have no idea why restored movies would have been pulled.
