By Admin Peter Rodger - Upcoming birthday wishes to Jerry Naylor. Jerry Naylor (born March 6, 1939) is an American country and rock and roll artist and broadcaster and inspirational speaker, who was the lead singer of The Crickets following the death of Buddy Holly. Early life and career Jerry Naylor Jackson was born in Chalk Mountain, Texas to a great depression farming family. His mother played piano in their local church and encouraged Jerry's love of music. Jerry listened to the greats of Country music such as Hank Williams, Sr., Lefty Frizzell, Bob Wills (with whom he shared his birthday) and Slim Whitman, and Whitman's steel guitar player, Hoot Raines, led the 9-year old Naylor to purchase and learn to play a steel guitar with money he earned picking cotton. By 12-years old, Jerry was playing that steel guitar at local honky tonks in and around Carlsbad and San Angelo, Texas, with his brother-in-law, Tommy Briggs' Hillbilly band which also featured Sherman Hamblin on fiddle and Earnest Smith lead gu ...
Well, I'm gearing up for my 12 year old grandsons big school dance tonight. I have the honor of providing the sound system and DJing the event. One of the teachers provided me with a flash drive loaded with current pop songs the kids should like. I think I'll toss in some of my old favorites for the dance. Maybe some Frank Sinatra, or some Dean Martin, and then, and then, a little iceing on the cake, Slim Whitman! Yeow baby, what do ya think:):):)
Gutted that Dolly Parton is at Glastonbury. I wanted her at Reading/Leeds. Along with Neil Sedaka and Slim Whitman. (Although I hear Slim may be a difficult booking)
No other rapper has ever sampled Slim Whitman on a track
and myself dedicate this evening to the memory of Slim Whitman. RIP
I read that Slim Whitman wrote this song for his Grandchild
we're talking singers like slim Whitman and that, haven't even heard of the bloke
Slim Whitman went to the recording studio back in 1980 for recording the song of George Baker "When"
Wednesday Wax: The music section was the hot spot it the store today. ABBA -Greatest Hits CD is SOLD OUT. Agnetha/ Bjorn/ Benny/ Anni-frid popped out with the hit "Take a Chance On Me". Slim Whitman -Greatest Hits is SOLD OUT. Slim sold over 120 million vinyl albums {aka "WAX"} around the world, and had a Middleburg, Fl state named "Woodpecker Paradise".

Part two. I lingered for some 10 minutes --gazing like a foolish teenager on the brink of her 1st love affair--watching his every movement..daringly checking for body language that screamed ..'' My organs are rotting away here ..'' ...Or some such sexual deliverance. He stood back from the edge of the balcony ..( probably a dark memory from the last incident invaded his thoughts..when he pole--vaulted over the rail )..( due to a swelling in the groin area ). My immediate thoughts were..he's popping indoors to replenish his special brew, so that we can call across to each other whilst he turns the volume up on his little Dansette record player playing his latest 45..''Indian Love Call'' by Slim Whitman. I myself popped indoors and poured a rather silly large glass of Asdas ( Walmart ) vintage spanish white ..reasonably priced at about 4 quid a carton . I skipped back out onto the balcony like a coquettish 15 year old..ignoring all the
Slim Whitman still one of todays favourite C&W singers gone but never to be forgotten...
I have several Slim Whitman recordings if you need backup
i wrote a song about Castlevania and it's pretty ridiculous. it starts around Jimmie Rodgers, goes into Slim Whitman, then into T. Rex
Probably wise. Though Slim Whitman is amusing, trolling a conference is perhaps not the best idea.
Would it be untoward to propose testing how well playing Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call" reduces tornado frequency?

do you think you'll ever be as cool as Slim Whitman?
You're lucky I don't dig up your Slim Whitman parody.
Two of my favorite people in this one little gem of a video. Andy Kaufman and Slim Whitman.
Okay, I've been listening to a couple of Slim Whitman tunes. For you young bucks, he's the guy whose music made the Martians' heads explode in "Mars Attacks". And although I have to admit that was pretty funny, I remember seeing the guy when I was about ten years old on the Jimmy Dean Show. Errol Flynn mustache. Black and white motif on his guitars and suits. Now you have to understand that I was grooving to the Beatles and Dave Clark Five and this new sound from across the Atlantic so old Slim came across as quite a clown to me then. But fifty years later, I realize that the man possessed a tone and incredible vocal command that few present day performers could even dream of. What a voice! Amazing perfection in multiple octaves. Roy Orbison approached it. Others attempted. Very pure musical talent. Must be getting old and soft in my appreciation of things I used to ridicule. Maybe that's how this life makes its circles.

It's a Sin to Tell a Lie" is a 1936 popular song by Billy Mayhew. Originally introduced by Fats Waller on the 78 rpm record Victor 20-1595, it was revived in 1955 by Somethin' Smith and the Redheads, reaching on the Billboard charts in that year. It was later a Top 40 Country hit for Slim Whitman, reaching on the Top Country Singles chart in 1971, from the album of the same name. John Denver tells a story about the song and does a cover in his 1978 album, Live at the Sydney Opera House (RCA Victor VPL1-7167). Other artists who have recorded versions include Billie Holiday, The Ink Spots, Tony Bennett, Bobbi Martin, Gerry Monroe, Brent Spiner, Lenny Breau, Buddy Greco, Steve Goodman, The Quebe Sisters Band, Ann Breen, Jerry Murad and the Harmonicats, Bobby Vinton, Patti Page, Vera Lynn, and George Maharis.
WITH GOD'S HAND IN MINE - Words and Music by J. Fred Coots With God's hand in mine, I walk in the sunshine, Free from all evil, His blessings to share; With God's hand in mine, my faith will not falter For God is beside me as I kneel at prayer. From the mountains, the valleys, and o'er the seas, Come the voices of others like me; Giving thanks unto God in His Kingdom above, For His blessings, His Mercy, His Love. The road may be long, but my faith will be strong, In the glory of God I delight; And it's mine if I try, and I'll try till I die, With God's hand in mine. ***I remembered this song (sung by Slim Whitman) during my prayer before Mass this morning, today on the feast of the Holy Family. I just wanted to share the beautiful lyrics with you all. As we draw to the end of 2013, I thought this befitting song of thanksgiving for all He has been to me and my loved ones throughout the year, and the message of hope for a bright New Year. God bless us all!

Celebrities that died in 2013, that I did not know about: Julie Harris, Marcia Wallace and Slim Whitman.
found the tumbleweed graveyard while hiking Red Rocks Canyon yesterday; eight to ten feet deep in places. Really wished I had brought a machete with me. Made me want to sing some Slim Whitman. Barely made it out alive. You get the point.

LOOKING BACK AT 2013 (Part Three): May and June began with a private and a public funeral service for the legendary George Jones. Some friends of mine, Deborah Anne and Callie McCullough, attended the service at the Grand Ole Opry and returned with one of the funeral service programs for me. Canadian songwriter Larry Wayne Clark lost his battle with cancer. Among the songs he co-wrote were Western Swing Authority's "I've Got a Feelin'" and Bobby Wills' "Second Chances." George Strait's father, John Byron Strait, died at the age of 91. Singer Slim Whitman died of heart failure at the age of 90. And Garry Walters, of The Walters Family, passed away from cancer. Mandi Lee Chandler, singer with Kerosene Creek, gave birth to her daughter, Ella Jewel. There were some BIG announcements: Alberta singer/songwriter Brett Kissel announced he had signed a deal with Warner Bros. Canada, the first Canadian country artist to do so in over a decade! After 10 years with the band, fiddler David Pichette announced h ...
Humbled to realize the passing of many influential people in 2013 that I grew up with and were then informed by: always loved that sassy Maggie Thatcher; danced and sang hard to Lou Reed; James Gandolfini reminded me of Carlo after a Pats loss regularly; Peter O'Toole, Eduoard Molinaro (La Cage Aux Folle ) producer and ahead of his time and thank you; Slim Whitman...totally original; Jonathon Winters.weird reminders of our time passing swiftly but seeming to stand so still back when we were young.

Ok, back from the tropical islands! Here is something I put together looking back at 2013. Hope you enjoy. 2013: MAJOR EVENTS IN COUNTRY MUSIC • February 17: Mindy McCready, whose personal and legal problems overshadowed her promising future as a rising female vocalist of the late 1990s, was found dead of an apparent suicide at her home in Heber Springs, Arkansas.

Merry Christmas Ted and Michele! Glad you're still on fb, otherwise, I'd miss you! Way too much! We got your beautiful cards.thank you! Carol C. sent everybody one with Charley's stain glass windows! In the midst of Fr. Dave's homily, he sang part of an old ballad, something about being lost and found! Sounded like a Slim Whitman song to me! Our community meals are doing good, 35 plus, most of the time. Repairs around here are slow, half _ we have new parking lot but the lines didn't stick! Do you miss us yet? Everybody seems okay healthwise...Julie's into bone wrenching stuff, Tony *** looks good.our Rogers' gals are altar servers...Tony R's. boys are growing! My sister messaged us at 6 am, scared Cat! Her birthday is New years' eve! I have a plan!

@ work, listening to Slim Whitman on a loop
As we close out the year 2013, I’d like to remember those we’ve lost in the world of music this year. I cannot imagine my life, my soul, and my record collection being the same without these folks. All I can really say is thanks for the memories and thanks for the music: Steven Paul Perry, Shirley Lewis, Walter Joyce, David Tedeschi, Adrian Medeiros, Ray Price, Jim Hall, Lou Reed, Gloria Lynne, Maxine Powell, Jackie Lomax, Ray Dolby, Syd Bernstein, Marian McPartland, Eydie Gorme, George Duke, JJ Cale, Carline Ray, Alan Meyer, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Slim Whitman, Ed Shaughnessy, Ray Manzarek, Jeff Hanneman, Chris Kelly, George Jones, Richie Havens, Chrissy Amphlett, Phil Ramone, Gordon Stoker, Deke Richards, Bobbie Smith, Alvin Lee, Bobby Rogers, Richard Street, Van Cliburn, Damon Harris, Mindy McCready, Patty Andrews, Claude Nobs, Patti Page, and Yusef Lateef. You folks must have one heck of a band up there.

Snowing again here and just my one to snuggle with!! Guess Ill listen to my Slim Whitman albums alone!
and one final late night musing before crashing. Thesis Statement "Mars Attacks" is a Native American revenge fantasy. The Martians come, a technologically advanced race, ambassadors first, coaxing the Earthlings into a false sense of security with a supposedly peaceful message in a language the Earthlings clearly do not understand, and then come in with guns blazing. Each attempt at negotiation is met with a double cross. Washington is brought down first, representing revenge on the institution. then Las Vegas is leveled, representing reclamation of the land from the evils of greed and capitalism. Each victory is gloated over shamelessly by the Martians. To top it all off, what is the ultimate downfall of the invading force? Indian Love Call by Slim Whitman. Whitman (White Man, get it?) is appropriating a misunderstood Native American "thing" for the sake of exoticism, using forced cultural assimilation to quell the voices of the conquered attempting to reclaim their homeland. This is what happens when I ...
(NOW AND THEN THERE'S) A FOOL SUCH AS I This song, written by Bill Trader, was recorded in 1952 by Hank Snow and in 1953 by several others, including Jo Stafford. While on leave from the army and having his only trip to the recording studio during his two-year stint of active service, Elvis recorded the song on June 10, 1958. Ray Walker was the new bass singer for The Jordanaires, replacing Hugh Jarrett. Elvis wanted Ray to sing his bass part in the same microphone he (Elvis)was using in order to make sure that, in the mixing, Ray's voice would not be cut down. Elvis wanted and got a strong bass line in this recording. Take number 9 was shipped as a single on March 10, 1959 with "I Need Your Love Tonight" as the flip side. By that time, Elvis was well into his 18 months of being stationed in Germany. In the USA "A Fool Such As I" peaked at in its 15-week run on Billboard's pop singles chart. It peaked at in its 7-week run on in Billboard's R&B singles chart, but did not make the country chart. In the U.K. ...
“THE ONLY THING CONSISTENT…” The only thing my long life, as I sit here on this spacious, park bench, is/was that I have consistently made bad choices, selections and always kicked opportunity away even when it bite me on the butt… I have been proud to brag about this consistent ability to release havoc and drama into what would have seemed a simple, straight forward path through life. But, then, again, this is a reflection of who I really am and not what I would like or fancy myself to be. Truthful, this is the core of all my sad shack tales of misguided adventure and as to old lady luck’s consistent amusement to set great opportunities in my path just to see how well and utterly I have developed to defeat, to rout victory and run it over the cliff – actually, I have literally done that…another story for yet another time. It would be fair to say that I am totally at fault and go to extreme links to lay waste to every good thing that has passed by me. A vain man would make excuses but, here ...

What a terrible year for old country music fanatics like me. Having already lost the legend George Jones, we have since learned of the deaths of Cal Smith, Slim Whitman, Cowboy Jack Clement, Marvin Rainwater and now the magnificent Ray Price. Ray's Crazy Arms must be one of the classic country tracks of all time.

Good morning FB Gang and welcome to Saturday! I have been posting Christmas songs I like this week, now let's hear from everyone about the ones we HATE!!! For me, hands down, it is "The Christmas Shoes". Trust me, there is nothing sweet, special or touching about loosing a parent on Christmas Day. The *** that wrote this song should be kicked in the balls everyday, very hard! OK Gang, there's my two cents worth, now lets hear yours. Donna Gott, Rachael Jones, Carolyn Samuels, Candice Gott, Beau Gott jump on in. My prediction is that Donna Gott will say, "Anything on Dad's Slim Whitman Christmas album!" Mom may second that! I am also predicting that Dawn Huber Samuels will say, "That *** "Solitary Snowflake" song from the PRP holiday concerts. You have probably never heard that one, trust me on this one, its awful! Enjoy your day everyone!!!

Last Nigel at the Fisher theatre, Bungay Vanessa and Ronnie Martin wrote November 5th and whilst outside there were bonfires and fireworks, inside the Fisher Theatre there was a *** of an evening with the Gentleman from Westport, Co Mayo, Frank McCaffrey and the brilliant Norfolk Comedian, Nigel (Boy) Syer. First on stage was Nigel, who, with his rubbery facial expressions and his Norfolk jokes had the audience laughing so much that I bet I wasn't the only one with tears running down my cheeks. Then, of course, there was his excellent accordion playing with instrumentals as well as songs including 'Folsom Prison Blues' '40 Shades of Green' Benny Hill's 'Ernie' and the 1964 Singing Postman classic 'Hev You Gotta Loight Boy' Frank was on stage after the short interval and we had songs such as 'Blackboard of my Heart' John McCormack's 'My Little Grey Home in the West', a Slim Whitman medley, and the infamous 'Oh My Papa' interspersed with jokes and short stories and finishing with 'When I Was a Lad'. ...

The Jimi Hendrix Guitar Sound,"Want To Know Why He Was The Greatest Of All Time?" The Jimi Hendrix guitar stylings have made him an American Guitar Playing Icon. This guy could give master classes on how to play rock and blues and R+B guitar. But you wouldn't want to take any lifestyle classes off of him, Jimi led a decadent know with the booze,the drugs,and the women...but gosh...isn't that what rock stars do? Isn't that why they become famous? OK,so... he wasn't exactly a poster boy for clean decent healthy moral living...He could still play the living daylights out of the guitar. And hey. you don't get to be a world famous rock star and one of the most beloved electric guitarists of all time without stepping on a few toes,right?

For years I have heard people say --Shreveport should have been Nashville. Let me try to explain why it didn't happen. Years ago when the LOUISIANA HAYRIDE was in it's heyday, unknown locals like Nat Stuckey, Claude King, Slim Whitman, Johnny Horton, David Houston, Faron Young, and even Hank Williams, all got together on Saturday night to put in a show. Remember these were local boys. Their talent was soon recognized and lured away by Nashville, because that's where the writers, publishing companies, recording studios, and the GRAND OLE OPRY was. Once Nashville had lured them away, they found a set to keep them. As a member of the Opry, they had to perform 26 shows a year, thus preventing them from wandering too far away. Nashville had a tourist bureau that saw the potential that the music industry had, and tirelessly went after it as a way to bring people to Nashville. Bankers were industry friendly, loaning money for music projects. There were studios for recording. Producers, writers, musicians, peopl ...

Jeffrey Leonard and Ken Harvey knew the answer to today's pop quiz: "Indian Love Call," singer Ray Stevens' 24th chart single, made its debut on the Billboard Hot 100 on October 11, 1975. Rudoph Fainl, Otto Harbach and Oscar Hammerstein Il had written the song for the 1924 Broadway musical production "Rose-Marie." In the 1936 motion picture version of the musical, Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald immortalized the song, which yodeling country singer Slim Whitman also recorded in 1951. Ray Stevens' soaring version, on the Barnaby Records label, reached No. 68, and remained on the chart for five weeks, as "Where Have All the Pop Stars Gone? -- Volume 2" describes. It punched higher on the country chart, on which it hit No. 38.

Four years as a regular on Red Foley's Ozark Jubilee as well as shows such as Ed Sullivan, *** Clark, Porter Wagoner and Sunday Night at the Palladium in London insures recognition wherever he goes.   He looks and sounds as if he had stepped out of one of Jack London's adventure stories. He is a powerfully built man with craggy good looks. The songs he sings range from lusty to just plain touching. A veteran in the entertainment field, from honky-tonk bars to TV and the London Palladium has given Rainwater a backlog of stories and anecdotes that are highly amusing and entertaining.   He's appeared on Ed Sullivan's Sunday night saga, was featured on *** Clark's network TV offering and was a regular on Red Foley's Ozark Jubilee on ABC Television for four years.

I dreamed of the great judgment morning, Had dawned the trumpet had blown, I dreamed the nations had gathered to judgment, Before the white throne. From the throne came a bright shining angel, And stood on the land and the sea, And swore with his hands raised to heaven , That time was no longer to be. And Oh!what weeping and wailing, As the lost were told of their fate, They cried for the rocks and mountains, And they prayed but their prayers were too late... (these are some of the words of the old Slim Whitman song) Friends and family-Jesus is coming back soon to take His children home-every single child under the age of 21 will be taken from the earth , There will be devestation like never before on the earth. Are you ready for the return of Jesus? May God bless you all-Daily Bread Ministries-KZN "Remember you are precious in His sight!"

It’s been a sad week for the show business world. The great yodeling country singer Slim Whitman passed away at 90 after a hugely successful career that encompassed 65 albums. But he once told the AP that he didn’t want to be remembered for that. Slim said, “I don’t think you’ve ever heard anything bad about me, and I’d like to keep it that way. I’d like my son to remember me as a good dad. I’d like the people to remember me as having a good voice and a clean suit.” That’s about the best epitaph you could ask for, especially the part about being a good dad. That’s something that also should be noted about the actor James Gandolfini. The showbiz community is still in shock over his sudden death from a heart attack in Italy Wednesday at 51. But here’s a detail that shouldn’t be overlooked. It’s the reason he was in Italy. He was there on a father-and-son trip, to celebrate his son Michael’s 8th grade graduation. Gandolfini was divorced, but he kept a very close relat ...

Slim Whitman passed away Wednesday (some of u young-uns may have to ask your momma who he was). A few interesting facts; in the 60's, his recording of Rose Marie was number 1 on the British pop charts for 11 weeks, something the Beatles never accomplished. Paul McCartney said it was Whitman that have him the idea to play guitar left-handed, and George Harrison said Slim was an early influence. Elvis Presley once opened for him, he had a severe stutter, and in 1956 he became the first US country artist to play the London Palladium. His wife died in 2009 after 65 years if marriage. Wow. I remember his guest appearances on The Andy Griffith and Gomer Pyle shows..showin' my age! Have a blessed Sunday all.

who'll save us now that Slim Whitman is gone? or was that just for when Mars Attacks?
The Old Man 2:45 P.M. To 5:21 Things just aren't the same anymore. I mean, I'm not afraid of a little change from time to time. When it's change on my terms, meaning I asked for it, or the result is somehow plainly beneficial to me, I'm all for it. Today I'm writing an essay on change. At least I think that's what I'm writing about. I'm never really quite sure. Tomorrow it might be the children's story I've been threatening to write. Maybe I will even go so far as to write something not in first person? I might not write anything at all. I might go to a few yard sales and drink a six pack of Corona. While I tell you I am all for change on my terms, I mostly try to do the same things over and over, best I can. Get up, drink coffee watching Fox news, shower, work in garden, more Fox news, eat, watch TV, write a story, go to bed early. There is comfort in routine. But things are changing all around me and I don't find myself filled with joy. Slim Whitman died. Ernest Borgnine died. Abe Vigoda is probably dea ...

Legendary country musician Slim Whitman's obituary in the NYTimes begins by talking about how his music kills Martians in "Mars Attacks".
First summer Friday on the 10th floor of an office building on 59th Street and Madison Avenue. Jimmy Connors shorts, Hawaiian shirt, Long Island iced teas in a Starbuck’s iced tea cup and a cigar that is ready to be lit. And these Slim Whitman videos really add to the ambiance.

So sorry to hear that Jett Williams' husband Keith has passed away. He was her rock and her champion. We pray that our Father will give her the strength to get through the sorrow ahead. Also heard that the great Slim Whitman has passed away. We mourn with his son and hope that Slim will soon be added to the Hall of Fame. Death is sure to visit us all but we who know Jesus as our Savior no longer have to fear it. Praise God. May the peace of God surround Jett and all the others who are grieving tonight. Dottie and I pray for all of our friends who are in need tonight, like Barbara and Michael, whose son has been missing for quite some time now. I can't imagine the anguish of not knowing if your child is even alive. Only God can sustain a person through a tragedy such as that. There is so much hurt in the world. Let's all pray for those who are in physical, mental or spiritual pain tonight. But for the grace of God, it could be you instead of them. God bless you all.
Dad called me today and told me that Slim Whitman died. I remember driving across Dix Creek on the way to our deer hunting area in 1977. The only station the radio would receive had Barry Manilow.

So Independence Day 2 has been announced. That's just what my life was missing, the sequel to a movie where the aliens are beaten by a Mac virus. Hopefully they learned something this time and come back with more ships that aren't powered by Windows NT. They've had 17 years to plan this. Nuke. Next. I'm guessing they'll call it ID42. I think ID10T would be better. Note to aliens. Macs are bad. Water is bad. Bacteria is bad. Slim Whitman is bad (R.I.P). Learn it, use it.

Thank you, Mr. Whitman, for the songs I loved that have been recorded by others over the years.Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, Mocking Bird Hill, Silver Haired Daddy of Mine, Indian Love Call, Rose Marie, South of the Border down Mexico way, and many, many more. Rest in Peace, Slim Whitman

I watch stupid comedies. Role Models (2008). I love them. The Rocker (2008). I love that. I like idiotic comedies. [on the final episode of "The Sopranos" (1999)] When I first saw the ...

SLIM WHITMAN & ME...It was almost the end of The Golden Age of Country Music in October of 1972. A big part of young America was about to discover country music, and change things forever. I'd been living in the East Bay with part of my band, the El Rancho Cowboys, a band named after a beer that sold for $.69 a six-pack. The Cowboys were part of a musical move towards roots country music that was taking place at the time. Two years earlier I'd been drawn to Berkeley, CA by the music of (the vastly under-rated) Commander Cody & his Lost Planet Airmen. Asleep at the Wheel moved into the 'hood about the same time. Junior Brown was doing a similar thing in another part of the country. In Berkeley, we'd play our collection of LPs constantly, all day long. Ray Price, Buck Owens, Ernest Tubb, Hank Thompson, Hank Williams, Hank Snow, Webb Pierce, Merle, Haggard, Bob Wills, Roger Miller, Johnny Paycheck, Porter Waggoner, Willie Nelson, Red Simpson...and Slim Whitman. These were our heroes and it was an amazing ...
Rest In Peace! Slim Whitman was born in Florida on 20th January 1924. His actual name is Ottis Dewey Whitman, Jr. As a child, Slim Whitman had learned to yodel by listening to Montana Slim and Jimmie Rodgers records. He married 15-year-old Geraldine Crist, a preacher's daughter when he was 17 years old. Maybe because of this relationship he has learned to sing gospel songs. The newlyweds moved to a 40-acre farm south of Jacksonville where Whitman worked as a meat packer. While working in the plant, he suffered an accident and lost almost all of his second finger on his left hand and became a self taught left-handed guitarist although he is a right-handed man. For his contribution to the recording industry, Slim Whitman has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1709 Vine Street. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museums Walkway of Stars in 1968. I love Whitmans singing which is mellow, romantic with excellent yodeling for certain songs.
I just watched a YouTube video of Slim Whitman being introduced by a starstruck Andy Kaufman. Nothing surprises me anymore.
Bummed out big time. Slim Whitman died today.
Andy Kaufman does some sideshow geekery, then puts on a moustache and sings Slim Whitman's "Rose Marie."
The upside of Slim Whitman's death: heaven is growing an awesome band of late-night album favorites. Just wait 'til Roger Whittaker gets there!
Slim Whitman performs for one of his biggest fans, Andy Kaufman:
RIP for country singer Slim Whitman! no more Indian Love Call!! would it be Native American Love Call today?
Slim Whitman dies aged 89 - Yodelling country singer best known for Rose Marie and Indian Love CallThe singer Slim Whitman, who has died aged 90, was a noteworthy figure in country music, since, although he was hugely popular outside the US, for most of his career he was almost forgotten in his own country. In the 1970s, two decades after his American heyday, he still commanded enough of a following in the UK to be voted the No 1 international star in a music poll – fou...
July 13th! Coming up shortly on the heels of the Livingston roundup, we welcome Roger Tibbs! Spirited, smooth, and soulful describe Roger Tibbs' brand of country music...and once you've seen Roger perform, you'll never forget him. Born and raised in New Zealand, he's an internationally recognized singer who brings his captivating style to American audiences again in 2013, to the delight of both urban and rural fans. You may have seen him on RFD-TV's nationally broadcast Midwest Country Show or at some of the music festivals and rallies that celebrate country music across America. Imagine a blend of the voices of Marty Robbins, Don Williams, Slim Whitman, Daniel O'Donnell and Dwight Yoakum and you'll begin to get an idea of Roger's sound. His shows are a mix of rowdy country selections, easy listening songs, cowboy tunes, classic rock 'n' roll, yodel favorites and even a New Zealand-centered song or two.
RIP Slim Whitman. Ill never forget the Andy Kaufman TV special with you and Freddie Cannon. Or how…
R.I.P. Slim Whitman, who I first discovered through this clip a long, long time ago, thanks to Andy Kaufman.
Slim Whitman - I'm sure Andy Kaufman is glad to see you again.
That's 3 "if you had asked me I would have said they had been dead for years" celebrity deaths... Jean Stapleton, Esther Williams & Slim Whitman.
A day of happiness and sadness. My youngest daughter's birthday is today, as is my second cousin Jeff Doran. The sad news was the passing of a really nice man, Slim Whitman, an old western music celebrity I met twice in my life. I gave him a ride in my cab in 1982 and then met him again at a concert in 1986. Sad to hear of his passing, but he lived to be ninety and probably had a good life.
Andy Kaufman's favorite yodeling pop singer, Slim Whitman, dead at 90. Bummer. I liked him too
