Al Dexter day

Al Dexter (1905-1984) was one of the more prominent figures in country music during the 1940's. Most famous for his hit "Pistol Packin' Mama", Dexter also had several other chart entries like "So Long Pal", "Guitar Polka" and "Rosalita". His song "Honky Tonk Blues" is also credited to gave the country music's genre of the same name it's name.
