GUEST,Richie Music History Question: Jimmie Rodgers (10) RE: Music History Question: Jimmie Rodgers 29 Aug 07

Here's a great story about Rodgers:

Early in 1928 after Rodgers had cut "T for Texas" (which didn't take off until the summer) Rodgers was not happy with Peer or Victor and approached Columbia for an audition in Atlanta. Frank Walker, head of Columbia's Old Familiar Tunes who had recorded the Skillet Lickers and would one day sign Hank Williams, listened to Jimmie sing. He turned to his assistant Bill Brown and said, "Who needs Jimmie Rodgers, we've got Riley Puckett."
