Hey all you hosses out there! I haven't signed in for a while now, I have been busy on my page that I just started, and it is really been a job I tell you! I would just like to really commend Per for the wonderful and glorious page he is putting on here! I don't think we really all understand the hard work it takes to put on a page, and I tell you, it's a chore! Per has done an excellent job, and I will in no way, shape or form ever be able to do the justice to my site that he has done with his, I am just starting out and learning but I tell you again, it's a chore, but I think in the end it will be well worth it! I invite you all to visit my page and tell me what you think, my page is different, I do have it about Patsy, but I have also included two other singers, that I am sort of stuck on also, the Cline is the all time favorite, but I thought these other 2 deserved some credit also, because they too lost their lives in a plane crash, at the peak of their careers and I feel like they should be recognized also!!! So drop by and visit, and Per, I have linked your site on mine, I have also linked Amber's and Guy's, and would like to also say that I am just so excited that we can all come together and recognize these people that made a difference in the world of music, and I like the fact that so many of us love these artists, not only for there music but for who they are also!

Anyway, I need to also mention, I did back in February, send in to become a member of the Patsy Cline fan club, and just when I thought they had forgotten me, they sent me the info to get signed up, so if anyone else has sent it, take some advice from me, be patient! They will send the info back to you, it just takes awhile, but I did receive it and included was the entry form and a short letter from Mel Dick. The membership fee is $12.00 per person or $20.00 per couple. With this fee you receive: A membership card, an 8 X 10 b/w photo, intoductory letter from Julie Fudge, a special gift, letters from staff welcoming you and quarterly newsletters. Also posters, shirts, hats, photos, etc. are available to members from time to time at special prices. I could not get over all the stuff you get just for joining, and it did my old heart good to know that they have set up such a wonderful fan club to honor Patsy! I am sending my entry in as fast as I can! I encourage you also, if you haven't yet become a member of the club please do so, I think it's a wonderful way to interact with people about Patsy and get to know people from Virginia, and her family and help them pay tribute to such a wonderful lady.

Also, I would like to say I saw the Country Weekly article on the induction of the Hall of Fame members and would like to add that I too was very shocked to read that Harlan Howard is just now being inducted! I couldn't believe it, I thought he would've been inducted the minute "I Fall to Pieces" went to number 1! I think Harlan is a very talented and gifted person, he has wrote alot of popular records and is very well known in the industry, and I just think it a shame that he just now is getting the recognition he deserved a long time ago, oh well, I guess better late than never!

I know it isn't Friday yet (my usual sign-in day), but I just saw some new Patsy video material & had to express my joy! It was a brief clip shown on "Yesterday & Today" this evening! The episode is "Country Radio", and is a *must-see* clip for all PC lovers, she is just... just... Patsy!! Dontcha just love to see her all sweet 'n demure with her hands folded in her lap, all ladylike? Did y'all see this show!? Wonderful!

I think Patsy Cline was one of the best femal singers that has ever came out. I loved her movie "Sweet Dreams" until the end when she died.
HOUSTON, TX USA - Tuesday, July 22, 1997 at 20:12:29 (MET DST)
You mean Harland Howard is _just now_ being inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame? What a shame. Harland deserved this honor a long time ago! BTW, I asked the clerk at my local Wal-Mart about the new Patsy Cline album and he looked at me as if I was nuts (which I am!). But as I explained about how a "live" album was being released, he got really excited. Maybe this album will blow the others off the charts!

I have a question that's sorta kinda Patsy related. Does anyone know who originally sung "When my Dreamboat..." that Patsy sings on the Cimarron release due out next week? Also, (sorta kinda Patsy related), has anyone heard that Mandy Barnett has left her recording label? I heard it through the grapevine, and I was just wondering if it was true and what might have happened.

The Countdown Continues: Just eight more days. Mark, the Cimarron Ballroom is (or was) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The MCA Nashville/Live at the Cimarron Ballroom homepage (check my earlier posting or the News page for Link) states this was Patsy's very first concert after the 1961 car accident. The concert is being released on CD 36 years to the day after it was recorded. It will be hard for us to remember when we listen to this album that on the night of July 29, 1961, Patsy's greatest songs were not yet recorded, and in some cases, not even written. The sessions that produced "Crazy" were still a few weeks away. The Patsy Cline we will hear is a woman at the threshold of her greatest triumphs, with the world at her feet and everything to live for. It should be a truly memorable experience for every Patsy Cline fan.

I am a huge Patsy Cline fan. I am very interested in joining her fan club. I would appreciate any helpful information as to how. This information about Patsy is so interesting. Thanks to all of those who have worked so hard to provide this for all of us. I look forward to learning more and more about the wonderful woman named Patsy Cline!!!

Hey Folks, Note my new aol screen name. You all can send me email to this name or the other one that is listed in all my previous book entries. I'm a tellin' ya, I just can't wait for the new CD. What a fabulous birthday present it will make, even if I did have to wait on it. The only question I have is where was this Cimmaron Ballroom? For some reason I think it was the Vegas show, but then I also remember that was at the Merry Mint Casino. If anyone can set me straight I would appreciate it. That's all I have for now. I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

Hi again everyone -- Last night (Sun 7/20) went to see "Always, Patsy Cline" in Chicago, with Alice Kirwan in the lead role. Great, great show. Kirwan's voice is terrific. This production was almost as good as the Nashville original with Mandy Barnett. I've just put up a "page 2" on my Patsy Cline site, so please stop by if you haven't been there in awhile. Thanks again to Per (for the inspiration), and to Jimmy and Amber and the others who've signed my guestbook and given encouragement. Eight days and counting till the Cimarron album!

According to the current issue of Country Weekly, two of Patsy's pals will join her this September as members of the Country Music Hall of Fame: Brenda Lee and Harlan Howard. I'm very happy for both of them. Maybe the show a clip of Patsy singing "I Fall To Pieces" in Harlan's tribute just as they did for Willie when they showed a clip of "Crazy". Regarding SOW: "Blue Moon of Kentucky" is outstanding. I like both the original version, and the overdub that was done for "Sweet Dreams". She swings on one, and rocks on the other. As far as the fluffed line in "Sweet Dreams", I'm sure Owen Bradley created that in the studio, by having the player skip or something. Now, it's my turn. Nine, count 'em, nine days until we can hear Patsy Cline in concert. Talk about "When My Dreamboat Comes Home". This is something I could only imagine ever happening, being born 7 1/2 years after Patsy's death. Thanks to whoever had the sense to record this for posterity.

There was an important date in Patsy history last week! On 7-15-61 "I Fall to Pieces" was Patsy's first number one! I just heard on the Opry that "Greatest Hits" has now sold 8 million! Patsy will bet out Shania and Garth in sales for one album. Cath, I like your idea. As a matter of fact I sent a picture of Mae Axton and me into Country Music Mag. It is on the newstand now.

Hi. I had an idea for a new page, if anyone out there is able to help. Per has given me the go-ahead to mention it on the guestbook. If anybody has a picture of themselves either with another fan or in a place that is somehow related to Patsy, why not send a copy of it to Per so we can have our own Hall of Fame on the site? I could be a sort of on-site fan club, albeit an unofficial one, and would make the site a little more personal (if that's possible). Lisa, SOW sounds pretty good to me!!! As usual. Cath

Since a good thought is rare with me these days, I thought that I'd share this one with you folks and the jewel of this is that this is Patsy related. Since Patsy enjoyed swingin' bands, I thought that it woulda been awesome if she and Buck Owens could have toured. I believe that she would have liked that band because it was one of the swingingest bands of the 60s. I think that the Cline would have blended well with the hoss of the bands. Just a thought... let me know what you think. Wade

Ok it is my turn on the count down - 10 days! S.O.W. Being from Ky, "Blue Moon" is a favorite. Always a crowd pleaser at the "Patsy" shows/tributes. The kinescope is one of my favorite. Wade, you're right about "Foolin' Round". In 10 days will have another version. Ok I found something for ya'll to do after you sign off. Call 1-888-CMT-VOTE to register your ballot for your favorite video. Patsy has had 3 of them: "Blue Moon of KY", "Sweet Dreams" and "Crazy" (from the box collection promo). So go vote for one or 3. Many people have asked about Labor Day in Winchester, Linda Cunningham has the schedule on her page. You must be a member to attend the luncheon and picnic. TV news: TNN will repeat "Yesterday and Today" on Tues. 7-22. This one is "Radio". From the commercial I saw you can see some ultra rare video - "Church, Courtroom and ..." Always, Jimmy 7-19-97

Hey Folks, Well I sure am glad to be back. After 2 weeks without a system, my new PC arrived yesterday. I thought I would die if I didn't get to visit this site. It was hard, let me tell you. Anyway, you all can wish me a happy 21st birthday (7/14). I am so excited to hear all about Camden and the neat things that happened there. And I can't wait to go out and buy the new CD for my birthday. I decided to waive all rights to a present until the 29th when I could go to a live Patsy concert. I can't wait, what a thrill it will be. Until then that's all I know. Talk to ya'll again real soon. I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

Once again I have to sing the praises of this awesome website. Visiting this site has become a part of my daily routine. My song of the week is "Foolin' 'Round". I've been listening to Buck Owens this week and realize that Patsy did an excellent cover on Buck's 1961 hit. I dig the way she ends the song by talking it out-that's just the bomb. I'm gonna be standing guard at the music section of Wal-Mart when the waking hour of the 29th rolls around. It's almost as if Patsy's coming to town. See you dogies later and remember to shake a leg and let your hair down. Bye!

Countin' down, dogies, just 11 days 'til ecstasy! We're gonna shake, rattle 'n roll when our Dreamboat comes home with Stupid Cupid! The Boppin' Computer Database hereby announces that the Official Random Song 'o the Week is: "Blue Moon of Kentucky", Session #27, February 5, 1963. Once again, I prefer the hepped-up version created for the film. But Patsy really got to let loose on this one, and I bet it was sure swingin' to see her perform it live! Other opinions on this one? PS When Jessica as Patsy is singing this song at the dance, how *did* they make her fluff the song?

My parents played Patst Cline music from the time I was born (1956). I have loved her music as long as I can remember. "Crazy" (of course), "Sweet Dreams", "Walkin After Midnight", "I Fall To Pieces", and "Back in Baby's Arms" are among my favorites. Thank you, Patsy, for the wonderful music. Thank you for this wonderful web page!

I just saw Gail Bliss perform at The Horsehoe Tavern last night. (Ms. Bliss performed the title role in the hit musical "Patsy!" here in Toronto last year, which I saw twice, front row). She performed new songs from her yet-to-be-released album, but for her encore she did a rendition of "Crazy" that brought the capacity crowd to its feet. I'm a Gen-Xer and therefore never got the chance to see Ms. Cline perform, but now I feel like I have gotten a rough idea what it must have been like. Are there any visitors to this page who actually saw Ms. Cline perform? Met her? Called "hoss" by her? Please share your stories with the next generation of CD-carrying fans!

This is the very FIRST time I have logged onto the Internet, and the first thing I wanted to do was see if there was any information on my favorite female singer. I first heard her music in 1963, and the name of the song was "Sweet Dreams". Since then I have been collecting as much as I could regarding her and her music. I remember the stabbing I got in my heart when I heard the news of her death. I never met her, but she still has a place in my heart. It is wonderful to see so many people still think of her... I will be "bookmarking" this place as I do plan on returning to it frequently, and maybe sometime will join in the "chat". Thanks to those of you who have put such a big effort into bringing her back to life for me.

I am a huge Patsy fan, love her her music... and wish to be a Patsy Cline imitator... I have been told by many older people that I look very much like her and thanks to the pics in your site. I now know that I do and have better abilities now to copy the hair and makeup styles that she used. This is a wonderful site! Great! And above all Bravo!

Patsy Cline is definitely the greatest female singer ever. As a matter of fact I am distantly related to her. (8th cousin) I am pleased to see that there are so many people that love Patsy and her music as much as I do. But I am only 12 and never got to be around when she was making her music. But I feel that she is still making her music, but this time in heaven. I don't have a website or anything but I plan to in the future. Although for anyone who reads this and would like to discuss Patsy or any other artist please write to me at 337 1/2 N.Walnnut St. Van Wert, OH. I will positively write back! (and would stay in touch).

PATSY CLINE is one of the best country singers I have ever heard. I even believe that she is one of the best today out of all the talented singers in the world. She gave us a voice that can never be forgotten and she will always have a great impact on my life. I've loved her since the first time my grandma introduced me to her music. She will always be the best in my own mind.

Hi everyone. If you've tried to access my Patsy site in the last day or two and had problems, please try again now. For awhile the server was down for maintenance, and then I had it down myself while re-designing it. I've changed it a little, so if you've taken a look before, please look again. I've made the pictures smaller so everything will load faster, and I've corrected the mistakes in the links. My thanks to Amber for putting a link to my page on her great site. I also have an identical site at Countdown, only 15 days to go to "Live at the Cimarron Ballroom."

I'd like to contact Per Jonsson. I'm the author of the original 1981 Patsy biography and the updated 1993 HONKY TONK ANGEL now in paperback. I read through the site and was stunned that nary a mention is ever made of my book by anyone! It's been selling for 18 years now and has the Louise Seger interviews that made her famous and are the basis for the revue "ALWAYS PATSY CLINE". It's my book that has been adapted for an upcoming Broadway musical with a cast of 20. The collector's edition of my book has 48 pages of photos, some of which you are using uncredited. I'd at least like to think if you use my photos you might credit the photographer and the book! I'D LIKE TO DO A FEATURE AND CHAT WITH YOU. Regards, Ellis Nassour

I will also name the source from which I got the picture. And I have mentioned the book on the main page, below the biography section, giving you credit for supplied information. And your book is also mentioned several times here in the guestbook, by myself and others. /Per
Lisa! Welcome home, pet. We missed you. SOW is one of my faves... she gived it a certain je ne sais quoi. Oops, gone all continental again. Only 16 days to go till the Cimarron Ballroom is released.

Welcome to David Guy, who expressed his PC sentiments so eloquently. Jimmy, thanks again for your updates & tales of your exciting adventures for those of us who can't join you! And Bill, honey, my dream duet was already done: Patsy harmonizing with herself! Regarding Song of the Week, I adore 7 Lonely Days, but I do prefer the arrangement created for the movie. Hey, I still say that the most frequently used words in PC lyrics are "blue" and "true!"

Whoa, have I been busy this week! Thursday went over to Louisville, Ky to the Actors Theater for their production of "Always Patsy Cline". This was really different because they did it "in the round". This is were the stage is in the center of the room and seats are all around the stage. Only sat 300 or so. The two actresses did a great job of moving around the stage so all of the audience got to see the show. If you can get by and see the show do go. It is an unique experience and wonderful tribute. The show runs till Aug 10, '97. At the show I had material from my collection on display that the patrons could see. Everyone loved it and was amazed. Thanks to the PR department I did my first TV interview Monday. It was really exciting. They could not make it the nite of the show that I attended and decided to come to my house. They wanted to meet a super collector and fan. The even shot me while I was on this page! July 16-18 The Galleria in Louisville Ky will have Patsy Cline Days. I will be there Friday if anyone can stop by. Last nite Mandy Barnett was in my hometown for a show! She put on a great show as usual. Me and Julie Jones (fellow fan cluber) got to go backstage (which was a alley) and meet Mandy! She was so nice and we got hang out and chat for about 20 min. Per, she does not have access to the Internet. I had printed your pages before the show. I took them and gave them to her. She was thrilled and really like your page. TV news: I have seen a preview for this Tues 7-15, of "Yesterday and Today". I beleive it is a repeat. It is called the ladies of country music. It will feature Patsy. So if you missed the first time around catch this time. Always, Jimmy

I may be a genuine exception to this guestbook. I am a fan of heavy metal and hard rock music almost exclusively, but even I can attest to the fact that Patsy is simply a magnificent singer. Her voice is absolutely fantastic. You can always identify a great singer when the music is a backup to the voice instead of the singer just being one more insturment. Great songs... how about "TURN THE CARDS SLOWLY", "THREE CIGARETTES IN AN ASHTRAY", "SOUTH OF THE BORDER (down Mexico way)".

I'll go with "Lovesick Blues" as the song of the week also. I love that song! It's the greatest. Patsy really gives that song movement. My daughter is learning the song "Crazy". She's 2-years-old, by the time she's 3 (in a couple of months) she'll have that song memorized. She picks up words to songs so easily. Well, keep up the good work everyone! Always Kathy

Hi all you hosses out there! Per, the memory game is the greatest! My song of the week is "Lovesick Blues" recorded in 1960 session 11 I think (pulling that from the top of my head :)) I like the way she rocks the Hank Williams standard. That song along with "Stop Look and Listen" would fit in really well with today's country radio. It just has that dance appeal to it. Also I have a new e-mail address: Bye!

I was only introduced to the music of Patsy Cline about three years ago, during a visit to "The Golden Guitar" in Tamworth, New South Wales (the heart of country music in Australia). I just had to know who the woman was with that amazing voice! ("Walking after midnight" was playing at the time). It is such a privilege to listen to her beautiful voice, especially as so many of the songs seem to mirror ups and downs in my own life. We are all so lucky that through her recordings we can still listen to her amazing voice, and be inspired by her spirit.

I began collecting original Patsy Cline records when I was 15. That was 17 years ago. I have made several trips to Nashville, and purchased my first 5 Patsy 45 EP's at The Lawrence Bros. Western store in Nashville. Over the years I have accumulated nearly every Decca 45 release, every Decca album and many of the off-labels released in the 60's and 70's. My collecting wound down several years ago when I had found nearly everything I was looking for. I still need her first and third Coral 45 release and I have every 45 EP with cover EXCEPT "Levin' On Your Mind". If anyone knows where I might be able to find this, I have several items I would be willing to trade. Great website, by the way. I am working late tonight and stumbled across it. Oh - and for those of you who are recent Patsy Cline fans, let me tell you this... The thrill is still the same when out of the blue she comes on the radio, it still gives you chills when she takes her last breath at the end of "Faded Love", and it still pisses you off that "Why Can't He Be You" and "That's How A Heartache Begins" were not hits in her lifetime; even after almost 20 years. My phone is 614-298-8435 if anyone can help.

I have now installed a game called "The Patsy Cline Memory Game". A rather severe limitation in the game, is that you must have Netscape v3.x to run it. It will not function properly under Netscape v4.x, because the result page after the game is never shown (but I hope that this will be fixed in the near future), and it will not work at all under current versions of MS Internet Explorer. If you want do download Netscape v3.x, click here, and if you want to go to the game introduction page, click here. Your host:

Can anyone please enlighten me on the matter of when Patsy's parents really got married? In the Ellis Nassour biography it says that they, according to Hensley's diary, were married in 1929, about three years before Patsy was born, but in Mark Bego's biography (which I, by the way, got as a gift from Lisa Flood (thanks, Lisa!)), it says that they were married just six days before Patsy was born... This is very confusing, to say the least... I have Nassour's version in my biography text on the main page, simply because I read his book first... But which version is correct? Your host:

For a copy send $2.00 to Camden Chronicle, 144 W Main St., Camden, TN 38320 or call 901-584-7200. I have sent some info to the Winchester Star in Patsy's hometown. If I hear of an article I'll let ya know. I have heard that the NY papers have done some reviews on the show in NY. I don't have titles and dates. Someone is sending me copies. If you want the dates email me in a week or so. Always, Jimmy 7-8-97

If she had lived, in my opinion, she would have been greater than "Streisand", "Garland", or even someone like Mabel Mercer. As it is, she's (technically) the greatest female "pop" singer ever.

Hey everyone, SOW; This one was on my first Patsy tape I bought. Sometimes I think it would be a neat concept to put all the songs that have the words "walkin'", "dream", "crazy" onto one compilation. Could be a very interesting title! I have sent Per some pictures from Camden. If you would like copies please email me. Also, if you're in the Louisville KY area, Actors Theatre will be premiering their version of "Always Patsy Cline" July 10. I will be there, please stop by and say hello. Always Jimmy, 7-5-97. PS. I notice some people are asking about Labor Day Weekend in VA. I have spoken with Julie Armel of the Chamber of Commerce and asked her to put some details on here.

Regarding the Songs of the Week: "Lovin' In Vain" is one of Patsy's best performances. Full of energy. We can hear how much she loved up-tempo numbers, especially this particular song. "Walkin' Dream" is one of my favorite recordings from the Four-Star era. Again, an up-tempo number, showcasing the Cline's energy and vocal prowess. What it must have been like to see and hear her perform these songs on stage. The available radio transcriptions of "LIV" and "WD" are the rare exception of the studio performance besting the live one. I hope everyone has had a chance to make their "request". Thanks to Lisa and Per for giving us this opportunity. How about including some dream duets? I, for one, would love to hear true duets between Patsy & Jim Reeves. Since it was rare for artists to cross labels in those days, who on Decca at the time could have sung with the Cline? Roy Drusky comes to mind, but who else? Let's hear your thoughts. Until next time.

The database has selected "Walkin' Dream", Session 8, Song #2, 12-13-57. I wasn't crazy about this one at first, but it has grown on me because of The Singer's infectious energy. Glad to hear of the good times in Camden, I guess I have no choice but to join y'all next year! Now, y'all be good while Mama's gone -- keep Per busy, and don't stop listening to Patsy! P.S. The songs y'all are adding to the Songs Page are *fantastic*!!

Hi. Just wanted to say thanks for the additional stories on the "A Fan is Born" page. They are all great! Keep on sending them in. It's amazing how so many people seem to have heard Patsy's voice fleetingly on TV or radio and in those short seconds she has stayed with them. Even if you do not think your story is particularly interesting, I can assure you it is! Kristy, well done on your scholarship; I hope you do well at college. Which one are you going to? And to study what? Let us know. Ta ta for now, Cath

Well, it seems to me from reading over this guestbook that I missed a big hoot in Camden! You don't know how much I know that and I really wish I could've been there!! I would've loved it!! But when you're a mother of three there's not much time you can get away on such trips! I love to hear about everything that happened in Camden, it sounds like everything went great! I'm glad you mentioned this site at Camden, I think that was a very honorable thing to do, because Per has worked so hard and this is the best Patsy site on the web and I think it's good that more Patsy fans can visit this site if they didn't know about it before!

Did anyone take any pictures while in Camden? If so, I will pay the postage to send them to Per and get them up on the site, I think it would be great to be able to see the event of honoring Patsy 34 years after the plane crash! I wish I could see it now! But I know that's just something that will have to wait. Per, I'm glad you mentioned the chat line. I would like to encourage everyone to get PowWow 32, it is free of charge and it is really a great way to learn to meet others and plus we all get to talk together at the same time about Patsy! It's like talking on the phone only it won't cost near as much and we'll be typing instead of talking! Other than that it is fun!

I have several chat programs and they are really easy to use, they come with help features in case you get stuck but believe me you won't get stuck because it's not that hard, so please let's all try to get PowWow 32 and let Per know on this guestbook if you prefer Saturday or Sunday and the time for the area in which you are in. I think this is a great idea and a chance for us all to express even more our thoughts and feelings about the Cline and our love for her and her music. So let's all get PowWow. Per even has a place on this site where you can download it, it doesn't take long or much space, so let's download PowWow and get to chatting about The Cline!!!!

Hey everyone, Well Camden was a blast! I really enjoyed myself. I want to thank Jimmy Walker, Bill Culver, and John Griffith for making me feel right at home! I also want to thank Amy Barrett for putting the festival together. She did a great job. I also had a chance to meet Wade Settle, he is a really nice guy, and a loyal Patsy fan. Everyone has made me feel right at home, and if they don't stop bragging I am going to get a big head :) I urge all of you to visit the crash site when you get a chance, it is now easier to find since they put up the signs. I also have one more piece of good news! I told you a while back I received a one year scholarship with my project on Patsy. Well, that same scholarship is now renewable for 4 years. So basically Patsy will be putting me through college! It's people like Bill, Jimmy, and Sue Wilden who helped to make this possible, so I really want to thank you all for everything you have done! Always... Kristy Barnes :)

One more time I will try to push for The Patsy Cline Chat Line. It has hardly been used at all since I installed it. Lisa Flood and I had a nice chat for a couple of glorious hours last Friday, and the other day I got a mail from Donna Maggerise who also thinks that we should make more use of this feature. It's no big deal to install PowWow in your computer! Maybe we should agree on a time, once a week, or maybe only once a month, when we come together and chat about Patsy and other things that might interest a Patsy fan. Due to the time difference between the states and Europe, I think it would be best to use either Saturday or Sunday for this, and I would suggest 6 pm, GMT. That's 8 pm (DST) here in Sweden, and in the states, depending on where you are, this would be somewhere between 11 am and 2 pm, or somewhere thereabout. I'm sure we could exchange many useful thoughts during such a chat. Please reveal your thoughts about this here in the guestbook! Your host:

HAPPY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!!! Ok, ok. You guys don't give a hoss a chance to catch his breath. We fans had a great time in Camden. Attendance was down this year, but we had so much fun visiting. Bill Culver (mid america rep), John Griffith (the only one in the bunch who can remember everything), Kristi Barnes (her great parents came too) and I had a display of Patsy memorabilia. We had some info on this site and the fan club to hand out. Bill and I are jealous of Kristi. Between the two of us we have been collecting for 40 yrs. She has amassed a great collection in just a year. She has the greatest scrapbook. She has letters and pictures from Brenda Lee, Mel Tillis, Terri Clark and even Bill Clinton all supporting or helping her with her history project! It was a great pleasure to be able to help her. I am very proud of her efforts and what she has accomplished.

Thanks to Amy Barrett and the town they now have some directional signs to the crash site. Also Jimmy Thornton has a covered board at the site w/ some articles pertaining to the crash. I will get Per some pictures in the mail this week. The crowd was entertained by Mike Snider and Hawkshaw Hawkins Jr. I had the pleasure of meeting both. Also some songwriters from Camden did a show Fri. They wrote some songs for someone by the name of John Michael Montgomery (ha ha). Wade, it sure was nice to meet you and thank you for coming down! Keep those entries coming. Something I thought would be nice for the fan club to do was to give the Chamber of Comm. a picture of Patsy and one of her 45's to frame and hang in their office. I also gave Jimmy Thornton a picture to use in the new board.

So in front of 200 or so people I presented them and made a speech. I mentioned this site and all the fan club has done this year, & The Star project. I was nervous but did pretty good. I did forget to mention one thing. So I will do it here. As I said before Bill Culver was there. He and a great fan, Jeff Barnett are the one's reponsible for putting the mailbox and plaque up at the crash site in 1993. Both were there when there was no gravel road. Bill was putting them up in 100 degree heat. I personally like to think Bill had something to do w/ letting Camden know about all the people that visit the town and pay their respects to the four that died there. Unfortunately I failed to recongize Bill for his efforts in my presentation and interviews for the radio and paper. I am new at this and was nervous. Bill is a pretty quiet guy and I know he is not upset w/ me, but I would like to let all you fans know who did this when you visit the site.

I would also like to thank Amy Barrett and her staff for all they did this weekend. She worked very hard to have the Music Fest and to put the signs up. If you're ever in Camden stop by and say hello. You can find her on Hwy 70 next to IGA food store. Also please try to come to the Music Fest. There will not always be a tribute to Patsy, Cowboy, Hawk and Randy. But if we show an interest they will try to remember them in some way. I sorta pushed the Patsy thing this year and that's is why they had us and did so much for Patsy. Now I am going to get on a platform about something. It is great to be part of a club or group and I include this site. I feel we should also be active and show our support for our groups. So in the future make the extra effort to attend events relating to our group and others. Do some thing in your city. If you don't get reconigized, so what? Ya did something good and you can be proud of yourself. The Chamber of Commerce will help you and so will I.

Well, I think I have bared my soul to you all, but I considered ya'll friends. I need to go and buy tickets to a Mandy Barnett show. She is coming to my hometown!!!!! Always, Jimmy 6-30-97. PS. Per, I will get some Mandy pictures. Someone made a comment about some banter Patsy did at the Opry. The banter was actual from the Dixie Jubilee. I thought this too. Please excuse any typos.

I thought that it was in the Hall of Fame, but then I read that it was in the Willie Nelson museum. I'm a little confused. If anybody could tell me this I'd appreciate it. And also, aren't her gold slippers, that she was wearing at the time of the crash, in a museum? Kathy

Well, dogies, lemme tell ya Camden was fabulous. It was rather hot and sultry, but that didn't damper spirits. The highlight of the day for me was meeting Kristy Barnes (one sharp little gal!) and Jim Walker (one heck of a guy). I spent most of the day in the exhibit building looking at the Patsy exhibits. Both were absolutely wonderful. I was fortunate to hear Mike Snider, and I think that Patsy was looking down and laughing at that old hoss. He was great. Well, I guess that I should quit taking up so much space, because I want others to be able to take part in this. Bye! Take care, and shake a leg! Wade

Hey Folks, I first want to say happy birthday to Per and the site. Thanks man. Keep it up. I tell you, all of the new ideas are great. You people should be making money for this. This is perhaps the best website of any genre I've seen. It is just superb. To Wade, man don't ever feel you have to explain your attraction to Patsy with a sense of embarrasment. I think we all feel and understand the things you're saying. At least I do. She is the best. My email to you should say it all. Not to dredge up old news, but to all who sent me email regarding the "GAMS" issue, thanks. Enough about that. I hope you are all well, and happy. Those of you who were in Camden, tell the rest of us all about it please. I'm dying to hear. If Per doesn't want to fill the book with that just email me all the fun you had. I'd love to hear how it went. Anyway, that's about it. See you soon. I'll be loving you, Always, Mark

Hello everyone! Just got back from Tennessee. I tell ya, I did not want to leave. I visited Camden (twice). I went back the second time and left a picture in the mailbox. I hope that was ok, but I had to leave my mark. Hey, whoever sees my picture send me a comment or send me some e-mail, let me know what you think about it. I also went to Nashville, I vistied the Ryman (showed up too late for a tour), visited the E.T. Record Shop and bought a book on Patsy titled "I Fall To Pieces", bought a video about Patsy titled "The Real Patsy Cline". I'm a Patsy freak also. I can't get enough of her. I made a recording at Opryland. I sang the song "Crazy", let me tell ya, I totally killed the song. Maybe it was because I was so nervous, I sound better (I think) when I'm by myself. Oh well. Just want to let you know, Per, I think this is the best page I've ever seen. Keep up the good work! Talk to everyone again soon! Kathy

What a trip! Your page brings back so many memories of my childhood growing up in a rural area of Maine in the fifties. Patsy's songs were on every radio in every house, cow barn, general store and barber shop. When she died, I was only eleven years old, but I remember feeling the pain of knowing that her beautiful voice was forever stilled. I will always miss her.

Happy 1st Anniversary Per!!!!!!! Thanks for this awesome site and for all the hard work you have done, we really appreciate it!!!!!!! But please, keep it up!!!!!! Amber, I have an answer to your question about the Rainbow Road Club which I took directly from my book "Singing Girl from Shenandoah Valley", yes there is a picture of Patsy performing at the Rainbow Inn with the Frye's, she was 18 at the time the picture was taken and she was onstage with Jimmy Frye, Sonny Frye, Harold Senseney, Bobby Frye, and Buster Frye. Now this is exactly what the book has about the Rainbow Road Club: The Rainbow Inn was torn down in 1958 and the "Rainbow Inn" as depicted in the movie "Sweet Dreams" was originally the Orchard Inn located on US 340 between Charles Town, West Virginia and Berryville, Virginia. It is presently called the Rainbow Road Club and is run by Louis Ruffner. Further north, on US 340, is a restaurant, also run by Louis Ruffner, called Rainbow Diner and Truck Stop. So Patsy did sing at a place called the "Rainbow Inn", it was in the movie "Sweet Dreams" Jessica Lange as Patsy performed at the Rainbow Road Club. I can see where something like that would confuse someone, I at first had to read over this several times until it sunk in! Now for the description of the "Rainbow Inn" by the book: The Frye's (George & Catherine) summer place, a shed-like building "like an old Texas dance hall" was shingled with gray asphalt and topped by a wavy roof. Mrs. Frye called it the Rainbow Inn. From one to two hundred customers came out on Saturday nights, enjoyed beer and ham sandwiches, and "let their hair down". There was also an outdoor stage and a grassy area called Rainbow Park where concerts were held on Sunday afternoons. Amber, I hope I have helped you in some way, it sure confused me at first too, but this book has footnotes so I flipped to the back and read the correct info on the whereabouts of the Rainbow Road Club, so in the movie "Sweet Dreams" they apparently used the name Rainbow Road Club, Patsy really performed in the Rainbow Inn which at the time was in the village of Greenwood (the address is now 1172 Greenwood Street). Is this the same place you visited, Amber? Or did you visit the Rainbow Road Club on US 340? These are 2 different places and I'm curious now as to which one you were at. I hope I haven't confused you more instead of helping you but all my info has come straight from the book. If I can help you anymore just e-mail me, See ya'll later!!

When I'm down and out or just feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders, I simply think of the Cline. I think of her strong will, her determination, and how she looked barriers in the face and said GET OUTTA MY WAY!!! I think of Patsy as a guardian angel too, so don't feel corny Wade. I have two big pictures of her up on my wall and I often look up at Patsy and only wish I could be half the person she was. Sometimes, I even cry to think of what a loss this world has experienced from her death. My friends think I'm obsessed too or that I carry it a bit too far, but I don't care. Loving Patsy's music helps me make it through the rough times, and to enjoy the good times all the more......

Happy Anniversary, Per! We owe you so much gratitude for all the hard work you do in bringing us daily doses of The Singer. Thanks to everyone who is keeping Per busy sending in song lists & fan stories! Before I stick my hand in the barrel & draw the Song of the Week, I have to add a comment about "Heartaches" I neglected to mention earlier: dontcha just love in that song how she does a little "yodel" at the end of the word "memory?" Only PC could take pop & "country it up." The random database has just selected "Turn the Cards Slowly", 6-1-55, Session 1, Song 2. I love the intro on this! I love The Singer's energy, she has such a good time! I love the fast-paced lyrics! Comments anyone?

I finally made it to the Ryman... Stood on stage and looked out on the Confederate Gallery from where Patsy and other country greats did. The place reeked of history. Thanks, Per, for providing this service to her fans. It's great to be able to stay in touch with what's happening with Patsy... Can't wait for the new recording!

Per, pardon the typo error. I meant to type Patsy's FANS not fan. (I'm sleepy). Again, this is an absolutely wonderful site and a great tribute to the legendary and very much loved, Patsy Cline.

This is great Guestbook. I love everybody's comments about Patsy Cline. I also do an impersonation of Patsy at The Superstars Theatre in Mesa, AZ. If anyone is interested in the show it's every Friday and Saturday all summer long. You can call (602) 380-0200 for more information. This page has really helped in my research on Patsy. Keep up the good work.

Hey everyone! :-) I have a question concerning the Rainbow Road Club. I was in Winchester this past weekend, and I visited the Rainbow Road Club. Now, I have been told that Patsy played at the Rainbow Road Club and I've also been told that there's a picture of Patsy playing that club in the book "Singing girl from the Shenendoah Valley"...Well, there is a pic of Patsy singing at the Rainbow Inn, is that the real name of the Rainbow Road Club? I am sooo confused and hope someone has an answer for me! Did Patsy REALLY sing at the "Rainbow Road Club???" :-) Well, that's all... Everyone, keep sending in your stories for the "A fan is born" page! I love the stories! *Amber*

LAS VEGAS, NV USA - Wednesday, June 25, 1997 at 21:45:42 (MET DST)
What can I say? Patsy's music is a great healer for me. All I have to is put on any CD, and the room is lighter. That voice is so beautiful. It's as if she's singing in your face. I keep pictures of her on my dorm room wall. I can't help but look at her and say "Way to go, hoss!" I think that she's our closest buddy. I could feel a little of her in me today. Someone that I had respect in lied to me, and I told everyone that I was gonna pull a Patsy which meant that I was gonna let that old so and so know what I thought of him, and I wasn't gonna pull any punches. This may sound corny or whatever, but I feel like she's a guradian angel for me. Does that sound weird? So many people make fun of this ole boy because I'm so wrapped up in her music. I wish they understood how respected she is. It's their loss. People say I'm obsessed, but I just think that's devotion to a wonderful star. I listen to her while I study my psychology. There is rap playing up and down the halls here, and when the folks next door blare their rap, that's when I crank up the Patsy. That's giving them a lesson in culture! :) Jimmy, please e-mail me. I want to hear from you. Bye everyone!

I just picked up a copy of Billboard Mag. 6-28-97. They have a great article on the "Live at the Cim". I have heard that "Variety" has an article on a new Patsy related movie. It is titled "Doing Time w/ Patsy Cline". It is being released in Australia, I don't know about U.S. release or Sweden one either. Keep ya'll informed on this. A note about Camden all activities will be at the fairgrounds. It is Fri. and Sat. this week. Looking forward to seeing everyone. Always Jimmy 6-25-97

Well, call me obsessive, but I just bought the Patsy Cline Story on CD, and I own the box set. I guess that that is a condensed version of discs 3 and 4 from the set. I think that I'm adicted to Patsy Cline, and there is no turning back now. This ole hoss has been led to water and he took a big drink. Well, enough of that. I still want to hear from all you fans out there. I wish that there was a college course on Patsy. Maybe that's an idea that colleges should consider. Maybe the difficulty level would depend on how intense we have followed the artist through the years. What do you think? Do you think I'm a quack? Well I do too! :-)

Hey all you hosses out there!!!!! I haven't signed in for awhile now but believe you me I have been here everyday reading and checking out all the new stuff!!! I love the new "A Fan Is Born" page and have laughed nonstop at some of the stuff, if you haven't checked it out yet please do so, it's great! Also, I noticed that Per, you put up the pictures that I sent you of Patsy's belongings and her albums from the Grand Ole Opry Museum in Nashville, and I have to tell you when I saw those pictures I just sat here in my chair and froze. It is so hard to believe those pictures look that good on a web page, I started freaking out and I thank you tremendously for putting them up on your page, it really meant alot to me to be able to share what I have seen about Patsy and share it with others, and I hope in some measure that Patsy will be proud. I hope everyone will visit the related places page and check the pics out. I thought they were great when I took them but I tell you they look 100 times better on these web pages!!!!! Let me know what you folks think of these and other pics on this site, I think all the pictures are wonderful, I myself haven't visited a site yet where there are so many beautiful and plentiful pictures I might add, it's just great!!!! Im just bouncing off the walls right now, because I'm so excited about the pictures and the new pages being added to this site, and I would like to comend Per and everyone else who helps contribute to this site for all of us to enjoy and I want to send out a personal thanks to all of you from me, because I think this site is getting more and more awesome by the day and I love to visit as often as I can to check out all the new stuff!!!!! It's great and I think the Cline would be mighty proud of you all also!!!!!!! Long live the Cline!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I've gotta say that Lee Ann Womack is one fine singer. Check out her CD on Decca. I was listening to Patsy sing "True Love" and "That's my Desire" last night, and I almost broke down crying because that voice is so captivating. It's a neat experience, and nothing matches that. I told Bill that I've gotta have my daily dose of Patsy because it's like mornings without coffee and Saturday nights without the Grand Ole Opry. All you folks touch my heart with all these comments. E-mail me. I will gladly answer all! :-)

I really do enjoy this site, and I think that Patsy would be tickled that her fans are contributing to keep her memory alive. I will try to avoid all controversial statements in the future. I hope everyone has fun in Camden, maybe I can come next year. Talk to you soon. Until then, I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

What songs would we have liked to have heard by "The Cline"? Hmmm... Well, Lisa, how about: "When I Fall In Love", "When The Tingle Becomes A Chill", "Lock, Stock and Teardrops", "Make The World Go Away", "Funny, How Time Slips Away", "Memory" (from Cats) are a few that come to mind. I'm sure we all would have liked to have had Patsy record "Blue". And, the dream album would have been "Christmas from Cline", featuring "Blue Christmas", "Silent Night", "Silver Bells", and "White Christmas". If only. But, we do have the songs she did leave us. Speaking of which, S.O.W.: "Love Letters In The Sand". Lush, heartbreaking, beautiful. Much better than Pat Boone's '57 version. Wade, did you get the "Live Broadcasts" CD. What is on it, and is it any good? Let me know.

Could not send my top five on other page, so here are my 5 choices that turned me into a Patsy Fan forever. "Sweet Dreams", "Crazy", "Walking after Midnight", "Just a Closer Walk With Thee", "A Poor Mans Roses". Julie, you said something about Elvis on page 5... I have some new info on him, but dont wish to say anymore here at this time. Marv

Well, howdy folks! I just played the "Always" CD (MCA 27069). When I first heard it, I was skeptical because of all the overdubs, but it is now one of my favorite CDs of the Cline. There is a country station here in Murray. They obviously don't appreciate the older stars because they sure spent time taking their digs at some of them. These 2 DJs were commenting on the TNN Country Awards, and one said that he saw Eddy Arnold in the audience. He said that he thought the was dead. Another guy said that if wasn't that he oughta be. I want to know how you folks feel about this? I know that if our main hoss Patsy was here, that she would give them a piece of her mind and then some. I feel like giving them hell for it because they don't realize that if it weren't for the older stars where would today's stars be? By the way--have you hosses heard LeeAnn Womack? Bought her new CD today and it is great. She will be here the 5th of July along with Mark Chesnutt-and it's free. I know this didn't have alot to say about Patsy, but that comment about Eddy Arnold ticked me off. Oh well. Bye everyone. See ya at Camden!

Howdy folks. If I had known what a contreversy over venacular I would create, I'd never have said any thing. But anyway thanks to Miss Information, and Amber. I have never heard the expression before, so naturally I thought that AG was referring to her dress, her looks, and then to her breasts. Sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone. I still think it was damn funny. I still would have liked to have seen her face. Oh well, my mistake. And Amber, watch for my email. See you soon. And Per and Cath, you two should do this for a living you have the best ideas. The new song page is a marvelous idea. Anyway til next time. I'll be loving you, Always. Mark

Comment: Well, thanks, but the forthcoming song page is actually more of Lisa Flood's idea, as well as the Calendar page and the Memories page. Cath is responsible for the A fan is born story page, and that's not bad either! And Jimmy Walker came up with the idea for the Achievements page. Fair is fair! The rest is me, and perhaps some higher force that I don't know much about! :-) /Per
Howdy buckaroos! Today's Song o' the Week is extra special. Per & I put our heads together (and it made the weirdest *thoink* sound, like 2 coconuts) and want to create yet *another* page with your help! This will be a page devoted to songs we'd like to hear Patsy sing. Send your suggestions to Per, keeping in mind the following: 1. Let's see how broad we can make her: think rock, heavy metal, r&b, c&w, jazz, pop, show tunes. Remember she wanted to do a show tunes album? 2. Forget gender, think of male songs too. 3. If you need to qualify your answer, keep it short. Example: "I vote for Song X, but a slow version." 4. Think old *and* think 1997. 5. "All of the songs that X ever sang" is OK, but give us a few favorite examples. 6. If an artist/song is relatively unknown, help us out! 7. Of course we'd like to hear PC sing every song ever written, but do try to narrow it down, be specific. Think of songs that you *really* would like to hear Hoss perform. This will be so much fun, y'all. Thank you so much, Per!

Hey Mark, if you want to e-mail me about Patsy, that would be great, I'd love to hear from ya! Okay, one more thing, I have started working on a homepage dedicated to Patsy, the link is where my name is at at the bottom of this entry..Please check it out, and tell me what you think! And Per, I will never be able to match this awesome site, believe me, I've had some fans tell me that! Well regardless, sign my guestbook and tell me what you guys think of it so far!

Hey folks. I finally bought the "Birth of a Star" CD. It is AB FAB. I love it much more than the other one. The dialogue is twice as good. Hilda has a speaking voice so similar to Patsy's. It's too neat to hear it. And what's with Arthur Godfrey commenting on Patsy's Gams (I assume he was referring to her breasts). That was too funny. I would have loved to have seen her face. What a hoot, she seemed too surprised to fire back at him in her usual Patsy style. Anyway a quick thanks to Per for publishing my story in the new page, and thanks to Cath as well for the idea. How perfect can you be. It is so cool to read the various stories. Until next time, I'll be loving you always. Mark

I am currently in a variety show called "Bob Glass Revue". I am always looking for more information on the "queen of country", Patsy Cline, and would appreciate any information you can give me on contests, shows, contacts to help me boost my singing career, or anything that you may find interesting. I am glad to see that there are others that appreciate her beautiful, inspiring,and powerful voice. Thank you and keep up the good work in helping Patsy live on.

I've loved Patsy ever since I heard of her through the movie "Sweet Dreams". Since that time I have collected numerous recordings and just enjoy sitting back and listening to her flowing voice. She is truly missed by many! What an inspiration to others!! "Crazy" is one of my favs as well as "Tra le la le la Triangle" for a silly reason I won't go into here.

By the way, are the 1959 and 1960 sessions in stereo on the "Crazy Dreams" set? It doesn't matter, just want to know. Hope to see lots of you at the festival. Please write me in care of Patsy or in care of the blues.

Wade, the MCA album "Songwriter's Tribute" (MCAD-25019) contains the stereo version of "You're Stronger Than Me" and "Today, Tomorrow and Forever" (MCAD-1463) contains the stereo version of "Gotta Lof of Rhythm (In My Soul)". I know the "Songwriter's Tribute" album is still in print, but I'm not sure about "Today, Tomorrow and Forever". Check the MCA Nashville web site under Patsy Cline. It lists all of the albums currently available.

This site just keeps getting better and better... Thank you Per, for the hard work you put into this for Patsy's fans everywhere. We are all anxiously awaiting the release of "Live at the Cimarron Ballroom". I hope someone keeps digging in all the archives of the Grand Ole Opry, WSM, TV stations, etc. to get out all the possible recordings of Patsy. We can just never get enough of her. It's so great to see Julie and Charlie check in here from time to time and for them to keep us informed. I had the privilege to see "Always, Patsy Cline" with Mandy Barnett at the Ryman in Nashville in 1995, and in a couple of weeks I'm going to see the Chicago version. To all of Patsy's family and her many, many fans and friends, God be with you, Always!

I'm not too crazy about it, so it's great to get some suggestions for other sources. I have a tape of the A&E Biography, but haven't seen it yet. I have the complete cd collection. It's inspiring to see this great page devoted to her and to read the comments of fans 34 years after her death. Thanks for the help you've given me with my work!

Amber, I'm glad you approve!!! I'm really interested to know how all of Patsy's fans came to love her so much. It's more than the music, I think. The way I got to 'know' her is just too strange, I feel, to have been a coincidence. There was a very strange occurrence the first time 'Sweet Dreams' was shown on TV over here. I don't think I've mentioned it on the guestbook before. I recorded the film as it wasn't available on video at the time and when I went to watch the recording I froze. Right after the film finished, one of the first reports of the Lockerbie jet disaster (where the PanAm jet was blown up over Scotland) came up on the screen. It was SO creepy that I had just watched 'Sweet Dreams' and here was this other terrible thing happening. The area I live in is not very far from the site of the bombing and we had wreckage from the plane in nearby fields. I still get the creeps when I think about it. I like to think that maybe the spirits of Patsy and the others were there to help the victims. It's my way of coping. Sorry to be so macabre. It really was so weird. Anyway, write to Per with your Patsy stories. I'm sure there are lots of people out there who have a good tale to tell and I'm a sucker for romance!!!! See ya, Cath
