Traditional Country Fan Club Newsletter always informative
May 20, 2011 by ahankwilliamsjournal
A new edition of the International Traditional Country Music Fan Club newsletter has been published. As usual there are lots of interesting items in the newsletter produced by Beecher O’Quinn Jr of Watauga TN.
O’Quinn has assembled a series of articles on performers from the 30’s and 40’s, plus a review of some of the great songs of the World War II period.
Featured in this edition is Ted Daffan an artist I was not familiar with. Born in Louisiana Daffan spent most of his career in Texas.He had a varied career as performer, recording artist, songwriter, and music publisher.
The list of legendary songs he wrote is amazing and his name should certainly be better known to run of the mill country fans like myself. Here are some of them: ‘Born to Lose’, ‘Worried Man’, ‘No Letter Today’, ‘I’m A Fool To Care’, ‘I’ve Got Five Dollars’, ‘These Hands’, and a huge classic ‘I Really Don’t Want to Know’. As the writer of the article John Bell says Daffan was a country music superstar. Thanks to Beecher O’Quinn for keeping these names and histories alive.
Also featured in the recent issue are Nita Lynn, Bill Clifton, and Jean Chapel.
