Influenced by the Golden Gate Quartet and led by the spectacular singing of Joe Johnson, this quartet hit the public's consciousness in the late '40s with "Milky White Way," which they recorded for Score Records. Other members included Raleigh Tunrage (tenor), Joseph Armstrong (baritone), and James Keels (bass). There were numerous personnel changes, and they changed their name to the CBS Trumpeteers during the mid-'50s to promote their CBS radio program. ~ Bil Carpenter & Kip Lornell~ Rovi
