The Patsy Cline Calendar - October
- By fall of 1956, Patsy had four singles out, and all of them were clunkers.
For Bradley, it was a dilemma. Patsy was not commercial for her time. She had
"sort of a pop sound", but Kitty Wells was still what everybody thought of when
they thought country.
- In October 1957, Patsy returned to New York to do the Godfrey show again.
Godfrey congratulated her on the marriage, and asked if she was happy, and she
replied, "just as happy as if I had good sense".
- Roy Deyton played lead guitar in Patsy's show at Gaithersburg, Maryland
Agricultural Center, in the fall of 1959. He also played lead guitar for Patsy
when she sang with "Bill Peer and his Melody Boys" in 1955.

on?" (Decca 31317).

alone" (Decca 31552) on October 28, 1963.
