Shreveport Songs: RAY BARTLETT - Stan's Record Revue radio show (KWKH, December 1951)
Announcing a new post on the Shreveport Songs blog.
Ray Bartlett moved to Shreveport in 1947 to work for KWKH. At the radio station, he performed a variety of jobs. This included serving as a morning announcer, disc jockey, and emcee on the newly established Louisiana Hayride. Perhaps Bartlett’s most celebrated role, though, involved his jive-talking “Groovie Boy” persona who spun rhythm and blues records on the radio show “Groovie’s Boogie.”
