'Finally, we will get to give Redd the recognition he deserves. Many songwriters have the desire to write a song that will become an American standard. Redd did it not once, but four times! I was a Country DJ for 30 years, first in Colorado Springs and then in Akron, Ohio. It was while I was in Akron at WSLR in 1965 that I had the honor to meet Redd.
We were both booked at Hillbilly Park near Newark, Ohio along with Lonzo & Oscar. I told Redd how much his music meant to me and that I had, and would continue to play his recordings on the radio. Thanks for the great site in honor of the greatest songwriter of this era.' (Norm Tester/Uvalde, TX)
