Shelley Lee Alley was born on his father's ranch in Alleyton, Texas. It was
said that he came from a musical family. So much so, that he had written
his first song by the time he was all of six years old.
Shelley Lee Alley holds a distinction of being one of the first pioneers
of radio entertainment: he broadcast the first program over radio station
WFAA out of Dallas, Texas.
They said he was a prolific songwriter and had recorded many of his own
compositions for 'one of the large record companies'.
He was married back in 1941 and was said to spend his leisure time writing
and arranging music.
