"Happy Trails" by Dale Evans Rogers, was the theme song for the 1940s and 1950s radio program and the 1950s television show starring Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Rogers, always sung over the end credits of the program. Happy Trails was released in 1952 as a 78 RPM and 45 RPM by Rogers and Evans with the Whippoorwills and Orchestra on RCA Victor Records. It was re-issued in 1957 as a 45 RPM record on RCA Victor/Bluebird. Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.
In 1951, Foy Willing wrote a song titled "Happy Trails" for the Republic Pictures movie, Spoilers of the Plains, starring Roy Rogers with Foy Willing and the Riders of the Purple Sage. Subsequently, the first three notes of Foy's song and the title were used by Dale Evans in writing her version of "Happy Trails" for both the original The Roy Rogers Show and the short-lived The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show, which aired on ABC in 1962. Dale's is the version that is popularly played and sung today, albeit without giving credit to Foy Willing.

Trevor Noah may be Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" replacement, but he wasn't the only comic Comedy Central approached about taking the job. A recent New York Times magazine article revealed that the comedy network considered several other higher-profile individuals for the gig, including Amy Poehler and Chris Rock.
The feature states that someone from Comedy Central "made a call to Amy Poehler … to gauge her interest," and cites an off-the-record source who said, "They were pretty much expecting her to say no, and it was the quickest no in history."
Chris Rock was apparently interested, but the comedian did not want to sign on past the 2016 presidential election. The Viacom-owned network ultimately decided against such a short stint.
Kent Alterman, Comedy Central's president of content and original programming, confirmed that the network "had a lot of conversations with different people," but he said that Noah was the only potential host to receive a formal offer.
Comedian Russell Brand speaks in Parliament Square during a protest against the Conservative Government and it's austerity policies in London, Saturday, June 20, 2015. The protest is intended to be peaceful, but demonstrators are angry at public sector cuts meant to address government deficits, which ballooned after Britain rescued troubled banks during the 2008 financial crisis. Demonstrators argue the public is being punished for a crisis it did not cause.

A leading Al Jazeera journalist was arrested at a Berlin airport on Saturday at the request of Egypt, a lawyer for the Qatar-based satellite network said, a move he described as part of a crackdown by Cairo on the channel.
International lawyer Saad Djebbar told Reuters Ahmed Mansour, one of the most senior journalists on the channel's Arabic service, had been abruptly and unexpectedly arrested in Germany.
A spokesman for the German Federal Police confirmed that a 52-year-old man was arrested at Berlin's Tegel airport at 1320 GMT (9.20 a.m. EDT) following an international arrest warrant from the Egyptian authorities.
Cairo's criminal court sentenced Mansour, who has dual Egyptian and British citizenship, to 15 years in prison in absentia last year on the charge of torturing a lawyer in Tahrir Square in 2011.
Jazeera is also locked in a legal battle with the Egyptian authorities to try to secure $150 million in compensation for what it says was damage to its media business inflicted by Cairo's military-backed rulers.
An appearance by Kim Kardashian (R-Vapid) on the National Public Radio show "Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!" has angered some listeners.
NPR received hundreds of complaints about last week's episode of the humorous quiz show. Kardashian was in a segment called "Not My Job," in which she answered questions about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. She answered two of three questions correctly.
But many listeners were outraged that she was on the Chicago-based show. Some have threatened to stop donating to the non-profit NPR.
In a response posted on NPR's website, ombudsman Elizabeth Jenson said she wasn't sure what to make of the outrage over Kardashian's 11-minute appearance. She said while Kardashian wasn't a great guest, "she was gracious" and had a couple of funny lines.
A Houston attorney on the National Rifle Association's board of directors is blaming the deadly Charleston church shooting on one of the victims, saying the slain pastor had opposed concealed carry legislation as a state senator that could have saved him and his fellow worshippers.
In an interview Friday with The Associated Press, Charles Cotton (R-Flaccid) confirmed writing that "innocent people died because of (Clementa Pinckney's) position on a political issue." The post appeared Thursday in an online discussion board about concealed handguns.
Cotton told the AP that he was expressing a personal opinion not reflective of the NRA. He also said he was "stumped" that his comments were still visible because he had deleted them after later deciding they were inappropriate.
Cotton said that Pinckney had voted against a concealed carry measure as a South Carolina senator, but a search of legislative archives could not immediately find any such measure. And he noted that the South Carolina law that bans guns in places of worship unless specifically allowed was the exact opposite of Texas law, which allows guns unless they specifically are prohibited. Cotton, a former police officer in Friendswood, south of Houston, said he carries a gun into church.
"That's the thing that's frustrating to me: Laws that disarm intended victims," Cotton told the AP. "How many more is it going to take when people realize there is no such thing as a gun-free zone?"

A police officer in Anniston, Alabama, has been fired and a second retired after they were linked to a neo-Confederate group that calls for the South to secede from the United States, city officials said on Friday.
The move followed a report by the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which investigates extremist groups, highlighting a speech by Anniston police Lieutenant Josh Doggrell and the attendance of Lieutenant Wayne Brown at a 2013 conference by the group League of the South.
The removal of the two officers follows a mass killing this week of nine African-Americans in a suspected hate crime at a church in Charleston, South Carolina, which has renewed calls to remove the Confederate flag from the South Carolina statehouse grounds and other places where it still is flown.
"I was shocked by the allegations brought against two Anniston police officers," Anniston Mayor Vaughn Stewart said in a statement.
According to a report in the local Anniston Star newspaper, Doggrell claimed superiors and fellow officers knew about his beliefs, but that was denied by officials in the city of some 23,000 residents, about 60 miles (100 km) east of Birmingham.
A helicopter pilot working on a reality television show was the likely cause of a crash that killed him and two other people, federal investigators have determined.
The determination was contained in a probable cause report by the National Transportation Safety Board involving the February 2013 crash during filming of a military-themed reality show for Discovery Channel.
The report released Monday determined the pilot should not have continued flying while having difficulty seeing because of a small light being used to illuminate an actor.
The report also faulted a Federal Aviation Administration inspector who reviewed plans for the shoot for not recognizing the dangers of the filming given the dark conditions and rugged terrain of the riverbed valley where the crash occurred.
Investigators utilized audio and video recordings of the early morning flight that were recovered from the crash wreckage to make their determinations. The pilot, David Gibbs, complained on an earlier filming flight that night that the light being used to illuminate an actor in the cockpit was making it difficult for him to see.

Indiana residents soon will be able to legally own manufactured sawed-off shotguns under a repeal of the state's ban on their possession.
The change takes effect July 1 under a bill approved by state lawmakers earlier this year allowing the manufacture, selling or ownership of shotguns with barrels 18 inches long or less.
Bill sponsor Sen. Jim Tomes, R-Wadesville, said the change would bring state law into line with federal regulations allowing ownership of short-barreled shotguns by those who pass background checks for permits from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Federal law prohibits someone from altering a shotgun to have a barrel less than the minimum length, he said.
"You can saw off the barrel but you'll spend 10 years in a federal penitentiary doing that," Tomes told WRTV. "These guns are manufactured by licensed manufacturers and they're under heavy regulations."
Nine endangered fin whales have been found dead in Alaskan waters in recent weeks, and researchers said on Friday they were searching for what might have killed them.
The dead whales were discovered in waters from Kodiak Island, off the south coast of mainland Alaska, to Unimak Pass at the eastern end of the Aleutian Islands, researchers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks said in a statement.
The number of dead whales reported since late May has vexed researchers who typically see no more than one fin whale carcass every couple of years, said Kate Wynne, an Alaska Sea Grant marine mammal specialist with the university.
"It is really perplexing for a number of reasons," Wynne said. "They appear to have all died around the same time. And the strange thing is they are all one species, with the exception of one dead humpback whale found in a different location."
The whales had no signs of injuries and showed healthy layers of blubber.
