Will Rogers Remembered

The Los Angeles Times has a nice tribute to Will Rogers. You may have to register to read it. Rogers was a big star on radio but his rise to fame was during the vaudeville days of the teens, well before radio was a popular commercial vehicle. To my knowledge Rogers never had his own show that ran for any length of time, though he was a popular guest star on various programs. He was killed in a plane crash in 1935 so any extant recordings of his are not common.
