30 Dec. Birthday anniversary of country crooner Billy Starr (a.k.a. Bill Stallard, 30 Dec 1913-4 June 1981), a native of Kentucky who left home aged 15 and became an established radio star by the early 1940s before joining the Downhomers in 1944 – an Indiana-based group best known for two of its members, champion yodeller Kenny Roberts and Bill Haley, later of Rock & Roll fame. BACM’s collection includes his hit Steppin’ Out and a bluesy Hound Dog recorded three years before Elvis. Mostly though an hour of early-50s-country, from an artist with a fine country crooner voice.
