THAT CERTAIN FEMALE, Charlie Feathers
Charlie Feathers' daughter, Wanda is glad to inform us : "I am just lost for words. It is such an honor to know "That Certain Female" sung by my Father, Charlie Feathers, recorded on Ronny Weiser's Rollin' Rock Records label, is being used in
the soundtrack of the new Quentin Tarantino picture -"Kill Bill." I know Ronny must be very proud also! From what I have read of Quentin Tarantino, he is a God at directing."

SAD SAD NEWS !!!!
I did receive a whole lot of emails today, all concerning the death of Johnny Cash, according to me the best singer ever!!
He died at the age of 71 nearby Nashville.
I guess that the visitors of this site don't need an introduction of Johnny Cash, we all know what a good singer he was!!
May you rest in peace, Man in Black !!!!

A LETTER FROM CHRIS DAWSON
Dear ones, Friday, May 30 was a good news, red letter day! We got the results from the CAT scan that was done on Tuesday, May 27. The lesions in Ronnie's mouth have shrunk 35% and the lung lesions 15%! IT'S WORKING! He was scheduled for the next go-round June 9 thru 13; however, due to the chemo sores in his mouth, the doctors have decided to postpone the 3rd treatment until the week of June 16.
