Biography

Cajun musician Aldus Roger was born on February 10, 1915, in Carencro, Louisiana. He learned to play the accordion at age eight by watching other Cajun musicians, including his father, Francis, and renowned Cajun artist Lawrence Walker. A carpenter by day, 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.” He also recorded a Cajun French version of Hank Williams Senior’s country-and- western hit “Jambalaya” (which Williams in turn had based on the Cajun tune “Grand Texas”).
Roger died on April 4, 1999.
