Who doesn’t love a great yodeler?
It’s Rosalie Allen, who taught herself to play music as a child in Pennsylvania on her brother’s guitar. Involving herself with radio, she scored her first hit covering Patsy Montana’s “I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart.”

Later, Rosalie Allen would become a popular County & Western DJ in NYC through the 1950’s, and later opened up her own retail C&W music shop.
