I found this Western Union Telegram envelope today at my Grandmother's house in the desert. This letter is from my Great Uncle Emmet, who lived in Detroit, to my Great Grandfather, living in Los Angeles, telling him of my Great Great Grand Father's death. I think that Western Union charged by the word. That might be why the message is so brief and to the point. It could also be that there is not much else to say between two brothers when it comes to their father's death. 1145 Arizona Ave is right off Olyimpic just east of the 710 and 5 freeway intersection.

Jimmie & Leon Short - "Old Indians Never Die" (1947)

Some good ol' Delmore Bros.-type harmonizin' from the 1947 feature Hollywood Barn Dance. Yes, that's Ernest Tubb intro-ing the Shorts...

I ripped this off PappyStuckey's Youtube page. This guy manages to find the cool/rare C&W and Jazz clips. Amazing stuff.

I've been real busy with a bunch of personal stuff (nothing bad, all good) and I haven't had the time to dedicate to this blog like I used to. Hopefully that will all change, so keep coming back and check out Sick's Sick Six too. That's my other blog with more Horror/weird/crazy stuff.
Thanks, HG
