Ranch Radio Song Of The Day #1498

We'll close out the week with Texas Ruby & Curly Fox performing Blue Love.  The tune was recorded in Chicago on February 15, 1945 and released as Columbia 37075.  For those who may not know, Curly Fox was touring as a fiddle player when only 13 and made his first recordings in 1929 with the Roane County Ramblers.  He teamed up with singer Ruby Owens in 1937.  She was a sister to Tex Owens, the writer of Cattle Call.  They married two years later and were popular performers till 1963 when Ruby was killed in a fire.  Curly never recorded again.  The Westerner
