A Happy Yodel
What better way to start this new year off than with a rousing yodel!
While the idea of the yodeling cowboy is pure Hollywood, that's what most of us raised on black and white westerns think of when someone mentions yodeling (as if yodeling comes up in normal conversation!).
Yodeling (or something similar) is more common around the world than most folks realize. Perhaps, sometime in the coming year I'll put together an intelligent post on yodeling, but for now I'm just going to nurse this bottle of gin and kick back to a little yodeling goodness.
Pull up a chair and have a snort, I think you'll enjoy.
Sorry about the quality of the first two, they were pulled from some scratchy old 78s.
The "father of country music" left us in 1933, but he's got a website
