SINCE 1948  

The original Stardusters band lead by Dean Anderson from Guthrie Center was established in 1948.  In the late 50's, the band became the HiFi's lead by Bill Schwaderer who gave Dale his start as bass player and back-up vocalist.  When Bill retired in 1989, Dale became the leader and re-named the band the Stardusters.
