“I really don’t know if I should be telling this or not,” Rodgers confided, “But when I was about 14, I was playing Puffy’s Tavern ... usually playing guitar for Jim Galloway who played drums and cornet.

His first band — featuring John Wiggs, Jim Houston and Dan Owens — was the Discords, named for the group’s difficulty playing a string of the right notes in the right order. But that doesn’t mean the group didn’t quickly get it together.

In the late ’50s, and Rodgers played in The Continentals and the Mark IV, Bedford’s first rock show.

In addition to Rodgers, the band featured Myron Thomas, Jerry Smith, Dave Miller, Kenny Foddrill, Steve Brinegar, Terry Blackwood, Johnny Fender and sometimes Janie Turner and Janet Rodgers.
