Broncho Billy Rag -- December 13, 2018

Gilbert M Anderson, Broncho Billy, was the first western star. With George K Spoor, he had founded Essanay (S and A). In 1914, Nell Wright Slaughter published "The Broncho Billy Rag," a charming tune. I can't find much information about the composer except that she lived in Texas and was also known as Nell Wright Watson.


  1. Hello Joe! Since it's that time of the year again, I'm popping by to invite you to join the Fifth Annual Buster Keaton Blogathon. Your articles in the past blogathons have been just excellent, so I'd be delighted if you are able to participate again!

    1. Hi Lea. I would be delighted to participate. I have been thinking about what I'm going to write since last year. Thank you for doing this every year.
