Roger led the Lafayette Playboys for over twenty years. During the late 1950s and 1960s, he hosted his own music program on KLFY-TV 10 in Lafayette. Among his many recordings are “KLFY Waltz,” “Channel 10 Two Step,” “Mardi Gras Dance,” and “Lafayette Two Step (1964).” He also recorded a Cajun French version of Hank Williams country-and- western hit “Jambalaya (On the Bayou)” (which Williams in turn had based on the Cajun tune “Grand Texas”).
