Oh, well... I guess I shouldn't get peeved about requests for information on this song. Every request goads me to look a little deeper. Pulitzer's Coalinga Record newspaper says
In 1948, the crash of what was then the most disastrous airline crash in California history was handled nation wide completely through the offices of the Coalinga Record.
I wrote to the newspaper and the Coalinga Public Library this afternoon to see what they can dig up.
