Freddie (Sugar Booger) Chapman
Born:  February 6, 1918
WBAX Wilkes-Barre, PA
WBRE Wilkes Barre, PA
WSCR Scranton, PA

Fred was a native of Middleboro, England, but came to know the country style of singing by way of his mother. The family moved to Breslau, Pennsylvania where as a teen-ager, Fred won first prize in an amateur contest. That led to a 15-minutes, six day a week show on WBAX out of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

His WBAX stint went on for a couple years before he joined Earl Taylor's Revue in 1938. With that group, he toured the south and parts of Mexico.

He served in the military in World War II. After that, he went back to Breslau where he was a disc jockey, did newscasting and hosted a show called "Circle 'C' with Freddie".

Back in 1953, he was a Capitol recording artist.
