Show Notes 

Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner

We chatted a great deal about Dolly and some details we learned about her. Below are our full scores as well as links and embedded content to go along with our show. You must listen to the video below where you can hear Jolene played at 33 RPMs instead of the usual 45 RPMs. You’ll be blown away at how it sounds like a male singer and how well it works. A great song is a great song, right? We hope you enjoyed this review of Dolly Parton and her 13th album Jolene.
