Imogene Dodd Tribute

This is something interesting that Raye found and sent to me. It was a touching radio tribute that was made to our grandmother, Imogene Dodd, who died during childbirth when our mom was born. Her twin brother was lost as well.

The tribute is by “W. Lee O’Daniel,” who went on to become the 34th Governor of Texas and then a U.S. Senator according to his Wikipedia page (and also the guy that the “Pappy” O’Daniel character in “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” was loosely based on!):

Along with the tribute, Raye also had a copy of the radio program schedule for “W. Lee O’Daniel and His Hillbilly Boys,” so we know that it is the same person as mentioned in the Wikipedia article.
