John Standley In Oklahoma
Roy of Perry, OK says, "Johnny Standley was a member of the "Standley Family Players" growing up. In later years I had the pleasure of appearing on stage with his sister, Martha (Standley) Knott at the Mummer's Theatre (in the round) in Oklahoma City.
The Standley Family Players followed the Chautauqua circuit throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska to perform lectures, skits, and vaudeville-type acts. The Standleys performed mostly singing (and minor acting) type acts.
In later years, Johnny Standley became a singer with the Horace Heidt Orchestra and they recorded this double sided record that was released on 78 and 45 rpm records. Somewhere I think I still have a 45 rpm version."
