August 29 — HOW CAN I FACE TOMORROW, Patsy Cline (1960)

image“If you could go back in time and see one concert, who would you see?” So said the meme posted on my Facebook page this morning, by none other than my third grade teacher, Mrs. Faye Hess. This is the sort of wonderful exercise that makes my head spin at a ridiculous rate. Bob Wills in the late ’30s at Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, perhaps? Young Elvis at the Louisiana Hayride? Coltrane at the Village Vanguard? The Ramones at CBGB’s in New York? “I could narrow it down to 50,” I responded. “Who would you see?” “Patsy Cline,” she answered. “Elvis came to Louisville before he was famous and several of my friends went. But I was never an Elvis fan.”
