Milton spent the years of his youth on an Indian reservation in Oklahoma before making his home in Tulsa. He got a job as a singer with a territory band fronted by Ernie Fields. He got the opportunity to play the drums when the band's regular drummer didn't show. Milton moved west to Los Angeles and formed a trio that played clubs in the greater L.A. area in the early nineteen forties.In the year 1945 Milton signed a recording contract with a new area independent label called Juke Box Records (soon to be renamed Specialty). Specialty released "Thelma Lou" in April of 1952.
