b. Robert Ellsworth O’Brady, 31 Dec 1914, Toledo, Ohio, USA, d. 27 Feb 1972, Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA. A significant person in the Sons FROM THE Pioneers and an effective film acting professional. His parents, who have been vaudeville performers, separated when Robert was 12 years of age and he relocated to California along with his dad. He was influenced by western movies, and from an early on age had an all natural flair for humor, without doubt inherited from his dad, who had frequently performed the clown’s part in vaudeville. Brady was also thinking about pop and jazz music and by 1935, having discovered to try out stand-up bass, he was playing in an area band. In Oct 1937, while not at that time appreciating their music, he was asked to try out bass for the Sons From the Pioneers. Because the group currently experienced one Bob (Bob Nolan), he became Pat. A normally funny guy, he also started to sing a humor track or two, and generally imparted some humour in to the Pioneers’ take action. He first made an appearance in movies with Charles Starrett in 1937. In 1943, he was drafted and offered with the united states Army in European countries during World Battle II, but came back towards the Pioneers early in 1946 and continued to be a normal group member until 1949, when his friend Roy Rogers presented him 1st in B-movie Westerns and later on in his well-known long-running tv series. He came back towards the Pioneers, to displace Shug Fisher, in 1959, and used them until 1967. Then retired and produced his house in Colorado Springs.
