amazingdeloresThis week the theme of our second hour is the music of The Amazing Delores. Delores was an enigmatic force of nature, a unique Mountain State psychobilly princess with a voice that could drive demons back to hell. We will tell you all about Delores in our second hour and share tons of her music.

The BrotherSisters “Damn The Torpedoes”

Hour Two with The Amazing Delores:

hqdefaulaatDelores Boyd was a native of Mudlick, West Virginia, and in her life’s journey she made it all the way to Dunbar, but also around the world as a subject of an installment of Jacob Young’s “Different Drummer” series.

Delores was a model and ran a “beauty and charm school” before deciding to take up a musical career after she hit the age of 40. Under the musical direction of Michael Lipton, Delores was able to channel her raw talent into a truly amazing weapon of musical destruction. Feuled in equal parts by the love of Christ and liquor, Delores became a cult star who could have gone on to greater fame had she ever conquered her fear of flying.

In this hour we bring you most of her CD, “Stop Messin’ With My Mind,” complete with a few of the messages that Delores left on Michael’s answering machine, and we’ll also mix in some early demo tracks and a live cut that I have in my archives. Y9u can purchase Delores’s music at Amazon.

It all kicks off with my personal favorite, Rats in my Trailer
