The Carson J. Robison, Cowboy Radio Singer Digital Collection. The collection of over 1500 items, consists of letters, musical scores, photographs, record labels, and cover art.
Carson J. Robison was born in Oswego, Kansas on August 4, 1890. His family later moved to Chetopa, Kansas, where he spent most of his childhood.
In 1920 Robison moved to Kansas City to become a professional entertainer. He became one of the first country and western entertainers to utilize the new medium of radio and performed regularly for Kansas City's WDAF. After gaining wide recognition in the mid-west, Robison moved to New York in 1924. Two days after he arrived, RCA-Victor signed him to make phonograph records. He began his recording career as a whistler and was known for his ability to whistle two tones in harmony at the same time.
