Dave Denney
KOMA Oklahoma City, OK
KTUL Tulsa, OK
WMGM New York, NY (1946)

Dave Denney was a native of the Hoosier state, Indiana, from Lafayette. He took a liking to the western tunes when his mom would sing and soon, his mom wanted him to have his own guitar to learn. The minister of their church heard of this yearning and soon Dave had his guitar.

When he was just 15 years old, he was working with Rube Tronson and his Texas Cowboys as a singer. He earned his entertainer's dues as the band played appearances in a wide variety of venues such as theatres, dances, rodeos, fairs and radio stations. But the group broke up due to the untimely death of its leader, Rube Tronson. From there, Dave went out west to perform on the west coast where he had dreams of settling out there. He toured through states such as Texas, California, Utah and even Mexico.

By 1946, his career found him at radio station WHN in New York and with a recording contract with the Musicraft label. He also dabbled in songwriting.
