It's disappointing that there is so little available in the way of comprehensive CDs on the singles delivered by this Country comedy duo. Yes, they only had three hits, and those were spread out over 26 years! But to anyone who grew up listening to the Grand Ole Opry and The Louisiana Hayride on radio, and to legendary Country music stations such as WWVA in Wheeling, West Virginia, they were every bit as popular at the time as Homer & Jethro, and much of their material, even though they may not have become hits, per se, remains in the memories of those of us who were around at the time.

It was none other than Country Music Hall Of Famer Eddy Arnold who started the ball rolling sometime in the mid-1940s by singling out two members of his back-up group, The Tennessee Plowboys, to form a comedy duo known as Cicero & Oscar to open his touring shows, namely Rollin Sullivan, already nicknamed "Oscar" by other band members, and bass fiddle player Lloyd George. The name stuck for only a short time before it was changed to Lonzo & Oscar after Eddy overheard that name being used in the hotel at one of his stops.

It was instant popularity, and in early 1948 they even cut their own record for RCA Victor, the original version of I'm My Own Grandpa, billed to Lonzo And Oscar with The Winston County Pea Pickers and backed with You Blacked My Blue Eyes Once Too Often. In February it climbed to # 5 Country, and was quickly covered by Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians on Decca (# 10 Pop) and Jo Stafford on Capitol as I'm My Own Grandmaw (# 21 Pop).

That launched them on a separate career by the end of 1948, including a long-time association with the Opry but, as fate would have it, that would be the only hit single for this particular pairing.

I grew up listening to thes guy's on an old Philco radio on WSM Nashville Tenn.They are like family to me. These two and Cousin Jody were great cards. Like Homer & Jethro, Uncle Cy P. Brassfield and Dr, Lou Childers I will never forget the hours of enjoyment they gave to our family. There are so many great country stars that have passed on That have paved the way for country music as it is today. People accuse me of clinging to too much of the past. They can say what the want, it was a very happy time in my life. Thank you and may GOD bless all of the greats that have passed.
