160k, 15 minutes, a salute to the first female country music superstar
Kitty Wells was the first female country singer who hit No. 1 on the country charts, back in 1952 with her signature song, "It Wasn't God Who made Honky Tonk Angels." This is also important as an early feminist song. Tonight I briefly salute Kitty's musc by playing four of her songs, just to let people who know little about her hear what she did. She was 92 when she died July 16, so I guess she was Forever Young.
Set list: 4 songs by Kitty Wells: It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels / Heartaches by the Number / I Can't Stop Lovin' You / Forever Young
With thanks to my listeners. This post is exclusive to killradio.org.
It brings memories of when I was a trusting wife.
