I don't think she's exactly the brightest flower in the field . . . I don't think she ever had a chance to be.

Every time I hear of the Louisiana Hayride I think of Hank Williams.

His ghost haunts Tootsie's Orchid Lounge down on Broad, by the way.

The local PBS station here produced a nice documentary on Hank.

Hard to believe that guy was only 28 or 29 when he died; I would have guessed he was 40. Hard life, hard living, early death.

Alleycat, have you heard the true story of Jim Reeves' big break? Hank went back to the Hayride after being fired by the Grand Ole Opry for being a chronic no-show. Reeves had been an emcee on the Hayride for a while but had been told his singing wasn't good enough. One night when Hank failed to show up, Reeves finally got a chance to perform. He sang "Mexican Joe," a record executive in the audience asked him to record it, and it became the Number 1 Country record of 1953.
