June 15, 2017 Record of the Day

Patsy Cline was as important to Country music as any female star in history. Her career all began with a song she didn’t want to record, “Walkin’ After Midnight.” The tune was originally offered to Kay Starr who was one of the hottest girl singers of the day but she turned it down. After Patsy Cline sang the song on “Arthur Godfrey’s Talent Scouts” TV show the record took off like a rocket and a legendary Country star was born. The original 45, released on Decca records in 1957, is now worth up to $150.00 with its picture sleeve.
