About The Artist

Toby Stroud was said to have been born in August 1921 in Lucasburg, Ohio. He made a name for himself as a singer and a songwriter.

During one part of his performing career, Toby was on radio station WALR in Zanesville, Ohio and headed up his own band called the Red River Ramblers.

Around 1944 or so, Toby came to WWVA with his band at that time, the Wyoming Ranch Boys. He was a long time performer there and even had his own program over WWVA.

They described Toby as about five feet seven inches tall and weighing about 130 pounds back then.

His career also saw him appearing on WRVA's Old Dominion Barn Dance show, too.
