Editor's note: some radio flashbacks etc. Nothing really new here for many but a few I'd never heard and so on so forth blah blah blah. I was a little surprised by the Eddie Fisher interview just because I can't believe that the paparazzi was doing that shit way back then as well. Sick bastards.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
