Soundie: Rosalie Allen - Chime Bells

Who doesn't love a great yodeler?

It's Rosalie Allen, who taught herself to play music as a child in Pennsylvania on her brother's guitar. Involving herself with radio, she scored her first hit covering Patsy Montana's "I Want to Be a Cowboy's Sweetheart."

In this piece, Rosalie sees her beau off to war, a scenario the world has seen a little too much of lately ...

Later, Rosalie Allen would become a popular County & Western DJ in NYC through the 1950's, and later opened up her own retail C&W music shop.

A pleasure to see and to hear. Rosalie Allen is one of the great Patsy Montana followers.

Loved her radio program in NYC. Brings back many happy memories for a city boy, now in Texas
