20 February 2008

This Sunday afternoon, February 24, I’ll be selling and signing “Live Fast, Love Hard: The Faron Young Story” at the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport, Louisiana. Thanks to Robert Gentry for setting up the event. It’s so exciting to be able to commemorate Faron’s birthday at the home of the Louisiana Hayride. Claude King is presenting a concert for his own 85th birthday from 2:00-4:00. I’d love to meet as many of you as can join us.


I’m pleased to announce my new Web site at https://dianediekman.com. I’m in the process of transferring the content from my old site, and there are still a few errors that need to be corrected. I’ll also be adding a section on Marty Robbins. Thanks to Jeniffer Thompson of Monkey C Media in San Diego for building the site for me. Suggestions from readers are welcome.


I’m trying to find the following people to interview them for Marty’s biography:
Chuck Morgan, Vice President of In-Park Entertainment for the Texas Rangers (former WSM deejay)

Joe Carver (former manager of Nashville speedway)
Thomas “Curly” Mills (airline captain and race car driver)
Eddy Fox (drummer in late 60s))
Jeff Chandler (rhythm and harmony in 70s)
Conrad Noddin (piano in 70s)
Bill Martinez (drums in 70s and 80s)
Larry Hunt (bass in 70s and 80s)
Jim Hannaford (keyboard in late 70s)
Gary Adams (rhythm in 1982)
Mike Cutright (harmony in 1982)
Shipmates of Martin David Robinson in the South Pacific 1943-45 (USS Crescent City, Boat Pools 11 & 15, etc.)
