Show #189 – Jean Shepard

Jean Shepard was a pioneer (November 21, 1933 – September 25, 2016). She held many “firsts.”

SOME OF HER “FIRSTS,”

STARRING IN THE 1ST NETWORK COUNTRY
MUSIC SHOW – THE OZARK JUBILEE.

THE 1ST FEMALE IN COUNTRY MUSIC TO SELL
A MILLION RECORDS.

THE 1ST COUNTRY MUSIC FEMALE VOCALIST TO
OVERDUB HER VOICE ON RECORDS.

THE 1ST COUNTRY MUSIC FEMALE TO MAKE A
COLOR TV COMMERCIAL.

THE 1ST FEMALE COUNTRY SINGER TO BE A MEMBER OF THE
GRAND OLE OPRY, FOR OVER 50 YEARS!

She made it happen with style. We dedicated this show to her, and to many of the women of the Bakersfield Sound. Sure we didn’t get them all, but we only had two hours!
