I'm the DJ that made Tennessee Waltz the gigantic hit it became. I learned of Patti's passing while on a cruise with my wife. It is ironic that i sent an encouraging note on the 28th of December and sailed away on the 29th. The news of her death brought back a flood of memories. I was 22 when she and I connected in Philadelphia. i have the test record she made of TW hanging on my wall with her picture and her note saying "Thanks Tommy for all the years" I was at the recording session with the Mercury records distributor who was selling Boogie Woogie Santa Claus as her next big hit. I strongly disagreed and took the test record with me and began laying it 4 times an hour on my show on WCAM. They told me it sold 25,000 copies in 10 days. That was Nov-Dec, 1950. i never was able to enjoy Patti's hit from my effort because Uncle Sam took me in Jan. 1951 to serve in Korea. She was my gal. I took her to a cocktail party for Frank Sinatra. Drove her at 1:30 in the morning from an engagement in Phila to NYC for her opening at the world famous Copacobana. She almost missed opening because the electric windows in my car went down and would not go up. It was 29 degrees and snowing during the entire trip. He voice left her temporarily. It was a close call. What memories. I'm 84 and going strong in Bal Harbour Florida. I'll dearly miss a sweet and wonderful friend...sleep well Patti and teach the angels to sing like you.
