    Patti Page started her pro career in the Tulsa area, singing for Page dairies on radio there. That's where she got her pro name.
    In the late forties/early fifties, she was known as "the singing rage", and remained popular for decades.
    RIP, Patti!

    "Doggie In The Window" was the #1 song in the country on the day of my birth.

    I had the 45 as a kid. I'm sure my parents had no idea of this connection when they gave it to me. They just thought of it as a song a child would like. They were right. I played it to death. It was only years later that I found out it was a hit when I was born.

    In a very real and personal way, part of me just died, too.

    RIP, Patti Page.

    I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
    And I knew just how much I had lost
    I have lost my little darlin'
    The night they were playing
    The beautiful beautiful Tennessee Waltz
