When music matters most

Roy Orbison

Texan by birth, Roy was popular in west Texas where he spent his early years. As leader of The Wink Westerners and later The Teen Kings he performed in many towns surrounding Wink, Texas. Roy performed in Odessa, Texas regularly. It was in Odessa he first saw Elvis in concert and that motivated him to investigate Rock and Roll instead of the country music he’d been performing.

When “Ooby Dooby” was recorded at the Petty Studios in Cloves, New Mexico, the Teen Kings got the attention of Sam Phillips in Memphis who also recorded them and on to Monument Records in Memphis for Roy.

Roy was a songwriter and pitched “Only The Lonely” to Elvis and the Everly Brothers who both rejected the tune. So, Roy recorded it himself and was rewarded with the number 2 spot on the Billboard Chart. That song catapulted Roy’s career. Between 1960 and 1965, Orbison recorded nine Top 10 hits. Ten more broke into the Top 40.

“Running Scared,” “Crying,” “It’s Over,” and “Oh, Pretty Woman,” are just a few of Roy’s songs you can hear on deepskyradio.com.

From Buddy Holly‘s hometown, DeepSky Radio is the expression of my love for oldies music. Based on the Top 40 format of the 1960’s, it also includes many songs from the Hot 100.
