ROLL, LAWRENCE “LARRY”

Larry Roll was the third member of the Virginia Trio with Jim and Jesse McReynolds when they were at WPFB and when they recorded for Kentucky Records. He was born in South Dakota and later moved to Cincinnati where he worked on WKRC, WCPO, and WZIP, with a short detour to Renfro Valley before going to WPFB. He played guitar and had a wonderful mellow voice. As “The Circuit Rider,” Larry did some solo recordings for Kentucky which were reissued under his own name on the Big 6 label.
