Subject: RE: Obit: Slim Whitman, June 19, 2013
The ghost of Slim Whitman must have hit 'submit' before I was ready. As I remember, Slim was the first to discover that the tv ads could put him back into business when commercial country radio lost interest. While there were many jokes at his expense, I suspect that endorsing the checks from the phenomenal sales eased the pain a bit. One of the true 'greats' from my favorite era of country music.
