Joe Allison 1968


Joe Allison brought a lot to country music, writing classic country songs in the 1950s and 60s.  In 1946 Tex Ritter recorded Joe's "When You Leave, Don't Slam the Door".  It was a top five hit.  1949 was his arrival in Nashville with shows on both WSM and WSIX.  Later a very successful recording executive. 

We had Joe in the 1960s.  He brought a one-to-one style which wasn't common in country radio at the time.
