Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
HOUR 1 OF 3: In this episode, we're featuring a classic Dave Dudley album: "Listen Betty, I'm Singing Your Song" (1971). Dudley himself contributed just under half of the writing for this record - impressive for a time when singers were releasing three or four albums a year - and his good friend Tom T. Hall added two as well, including the title track. Two of the songs were hits, but this release was put out as Dudley's star was on the wane. Dudley still very much hitched his wagon to the archetypal "truckin' song" which made his career in the early 60s, and cuts like "The Rollin's All Gone Out Of This Rollin' Stone", "Farewell To The Road" and "Listen Betty, I'm Singing Your Song" (a tribute to a truckstop waitress) demonstrate that he was just as good as he ever was. Even if the chart-toppers were drying up at the time, the material on this release and his back catalogue kept Dave Dudley working personal appearances for many years to come. A solid album.  Western Red
