Albert Brumley was born in the Choctaw Nation (now part of Oklahoma) in October, 1905. He is probably the best-known 20th century gospel music writer in America. He wrote his most successful gospel song in 1929—"I'll Fly Away"—and it was first published in 1932. "Turn Your Radio On" was another of an estimated 600 to 800 compositions. Another Brumley song recorded (though unofficially during the "Million Dollar Quartet" session) by Elvis is "Blessed Jesus Hold My Hand" (see above). Brumley died in November 1977.
The Blackwood Brothers made the first recording in late 1945 or early 1946, so more than likely preceding the Brown's Ferry Four's 1946 recording. The Blackwoods' recording was released as the B-side of "The Love of God" on the "Blackwood Brothers Recordings" label as recording number 10. Later, they rerecorded the number for release on the White Church label and that same recording was used on the Christian Education label. At the same time, the rerecorded version was released on a colour-variant of the Blackwood Brothers Recordings label.
(Brown's Ferry Four's version of "If We Never Meet Again" was recorded in 1946 and released on King 577 in 1947.)
