Strong's band, now on tour ful-
filling personal appearance en-
gagements which accrued during
their long term radio contract, will
provide dancing entertainment at
the Professional IFC Ball, to be
held Friday in the League Ball-
room, and at "Rose Bowl Ball," an

Unlike most newborn bands
which achieve popularity after a
long siege -of one-night stands
and tank town engagements, the
Strong outfit had a featured
spot on a coast-to-coast net-
work before it was even organ-
Now, after continuous engage-
ments on such programs as "Ava-
lon Time" with Red Skelton,
'Showboat," "College Humor," and
"Uncle Walter's Doghouse,"
Strong and his men have at last
entered the "in person" field.
Although Strong usually
makes use of only his writing,
directional, and arranging abili-
ties where the band is con-
cerned, he is also master of at
least six instruments.
Beginning at the age of one and
a half, when he learned to play the
phonograph, Strong successively
learned the mysteries of the piano,
violin, saxophone, oboe, clarinet,
and French horn.
Before he could read a word,
young Bob was reading music
fluently. At the tender age of
12, he won first prize in a fiddle
festival in his home town of
After attending Wichita College
of Music and Kansas State 'Col-
lege, Strong went on to Chicago,
where his previous career as solo-
ist, arranger, and then band leader
of radio studio orcestras started.
For relaxation, Strong enjoys
golfing and fishing. As a gourmet,
he eagerly aticipates the food spe-
cialties of each city he visits.
