Recalling 'Cactus' Jack Call, the Man Patsy Cline Came to KC to Honor

Can’t wait for chimpy to start a protest demanding that patsy Cline be removed from the face of the earth because she was white and therefore is automatically called a racist. It’s so racist to acknowledge whitey now and it must be stopped amirite!

nice essay, radio history, country music jubilees on the radio in the 50s and 60s, interesting

but the detail about cactus jack throwing away the records that artists submitted to the station, claiming that these submitting artists were too proud to meet him in person, thereby deserving the destruction of their recorded creative music.

seems hard to say he was a friend of musicians with that kind of behavior! rather egotistical, isn't it? and to be so bold as to boast about it, rather than just doing it in private as a personal little redressing of grievance...

We need to name our new airport for such a influential woman of White color.
Where is the justice? I mean she visited here just like mlk. I guess she dont have enough privilage.
