Charles "Buddy" Rogers (1904-1999) studied at the University of Kansas. In the mid-20s he began acting professionally in Hollywood films. A talented trombonist, skilled on several other musical instruments, Rogers performed with his own jazz band in motion pictures and on radio. During World War II, he served in the United States Navy as a flight training instructor. According to the "American Dance Bands On Record and Film (1915-1942)" compiled by Richard J. Johnson and Bernard H. Shirley (Rustbooks Publishing, 2010), Rogers was not a bandleader in the normal use of the term. Instead, he was a film actor who fronted a band for publicity purposes. His later bands were organized by Milt Shaw. In 1938 Rogers opened at The Palomar Ballroom in Los Angeles after a road trip of the eastern USA and England.Nevertheless, Rogers' early 30's records are among the very best of the era. More especically, this side was waxed in 1932, featuring a vocal which probably is by Rogers himself.
