Clyde “Harvey” Rogers died Saturday Jan. 19, 2013, at the age of 86. Harvey was born in Valentine, Texas, on May 29, 1926, to Charlie and Effie Rogers of Sanderson. Harvey was educated in the Sanderson public schools and went into the U.S. Army shortly after graduation. During World War II, he was separated from his group and was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. He was in the Army Military Band and hooked up with his friend and soon-to-be country radio star, Charlie Walker. Harvey played upright bass for Charlie Walker and his “Texas Ramblers,” and they had the first country and western radio program in Tokyo, Japan, during World War II.  . . .
