Tributes: Patti Page

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

Clara Ann Fowler was one of 11 children born to a railroad laborer in a small town outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma.  As “Patti Page,” she would become one of the most successful singers in the 1950s.  Her honeyed voice made hits of songs like “Tennessee Waltz,” “(How Much Is) That Doggie in the Window,” “Allegheny Moon,” and “Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte.”  She died recently at the age of 85.  And you can listen to her reminisce with Leonard in an interview from March 2001.
