Hank Cochran

OK, In Memoriam: This Mississippi-born Country Music giant left us one week ago at the age of 74. Best known as a prolific composer, he was also a respectable recording artist, charting 7 times between '62 and '80. Credited with discovering Willie Nelson at Tootsie's Orchard Lounge in Nashvillle. Some faves include "I Fall To Pieces", "Make The World Go Away", "A Little Bitty Tear" and "The Chair", my #1 George Strait tune.

Yesterday's answer: "I Love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett and The Blackhearts. Last night I rented "The Runaways" - not bad!
