Onie Wheeler died on-stage at the Grand Ole Opry in 1984, a poetic end for a man who spent his life toiling in relative obscurity for country music. He barely even qualifies as a one-hit wonder, having charted only one minor country hit in 1973. He was, however, a unique performer and a talented songwriter whose first OKeh single, "Run 'Em Off," became a hit via Lefty Frizzell's cover version. A few years later his song "No, I Don't Guess I Will," with minor revisions to the lyric, gave Carl Smith a hit.

Who Put the Bomp (in the Bomp, Bomp, Bomp)" is a doo-wop style novelty song from 1961 co-written (with Gerry Goffin) and recorded by Barry Mann. The song was originally released as a single on the ABC-Paramount label (10237). In this song, Mann sings about the frequent use of nonsense lyrics in doo-wop music, and how his girl fell in love with him after listening to several such songs.

Back in the '50s and '60s, Wheeler was one of the great country music sidemen, back when they still called it "country and Western music. While he recorded lots of solo material, the guitarist and harmonica player backed Johnny Cash, Ray Acuff, and George Jones, among others, and the legendary Lefty Frizzell had a huge hit with a song Wheeler wrote called "Run 'Em Of. In the '70s and '80s, Wheeler lived in Nashville and performed regularly at the city's iconic Grand Ole Opry. Despite drawing crowds that wanted to hear Vierne's otherworldly organ work, particularly on his own compositions (he wrote six symphonies), the Catholic Church clergy that ran Notre-Dame decided in 1937 to discontinue all organ recitals. They at least let Vierne play for the people one final time, on June 2, 1937.

Listen to the biggest hits from Onie Wheeler, including I Wanna Hold My Baby, Boger Gonna Get You, Bonaparte's Retreat, and more on Slacker Radio. Sorry to interrupt - we wanted to confirm you're still listening. Wheeler formed the Ozark Cowboys five years later with Ernest Thompson and brothers . The Cowboys played clubs in Texas in 1952, and were encouraged to travel to Nashville by Little Jimmy Dickens. After reaching Music City, Onie Wheeler and the Cowboys found a deal with Columbia. He recorded in 1953, and though his material wasn't successful, Lefty Frizzell reached the Country Top Ten a year later with Wheeler's "Run 'Em Of.

Onie Wheeler: Onie's Bop. 1-CD with 20-page booklet, 31 tracks. Wheeler, Onie - Onie's Bop CD 1. 01. Jump Right Out Of This Jukebox. 02. Tell 'em Off (master). Onie's manager, Charlie Terrell, landed him a gig with Flatt and Scruggs who were hosting a syndicated television show and travelling far and wide. It was probably the exposure with a fellow Columbia act that persuaded Law to hang onto Onie as long as he did. It's hard to say why Onie Wheeler never really made it. "He had an unwillingness to do a lot of the things that were necessary to be successful," said longtime band member . He disliked going to radio stations and promoting his records-he thought it was a waste of time, and he certainly wouldn't.
