This is for Margadant's youth. And for Aunt Dorothy, who has followed my blog from almost day one and now well into her 8th decade has upgraded to high-speed internet and can finally listen to the tunes. Jim probably remembers the Patti Page version. I've listened to them both. No contest - Patsy wins. As for The Blue Skirt Waltz, there is no good version. I to recall a decent cut by Hank Thompson, which seems to have vanished in time. Frankie Yankovic had it out in the fifties, but I have to maintain a few minimal standards.
