Fred Roden

Fred Roden was a Canadian hillbilly act in the early 1950s when we first find something about him.

Fred while quite the entertainer, also had his own Roden Record Coral in East Toronto back then and was a promoter of sorts for the Canadian artists.

During that time, he was also doing chores as a disc jockey with a daily show over CKFH in Toronto, Ontario.

One of the intersting items of note for Fred was his mariage. He married his wife, Lorette, during the 20-minute intermission of a Grand Ole Opry touring show at the Mutual Street arean. They had 2,500 folks in the audience who had paid $1.50 to be there. Fred said, "I wanted to be married among friend and among people who liked the same things I like." A legendary Country Music Hall of Famer, Ernest Tubb, and his band, the Texas Troubadours, provided the wedding music for Fred and Lorette's ceremony.
