Editor's note: I don't know what it was about the people of the 1950s but they all had similar vocal intonations. From bums to millionaires it was a prim and proper sound when compared to our lazy and lax speech of today. Yet, I find their way fairly annoying. Even more annoying are the people now who speak like they did in the 50s. It's a grating and overachieving sound that doesn't quite meet our time. Which is kind of funny because politicians still rake us over the coals with the same grandiose and dry sentiment that was as false then as it is now. Nobody seems to notice it while it's being said but wonder how they were ever fooled when listening back. Oh well!
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!
