Read what Patsy Cline had to say about Dorothy Kilgallen the night before this broadcast: From: http://www.patsified.com/bio/bio09.htm
The following was said onstage by Patsy during a concert on November 25, 1961: "We're gonna be in 'high cotton' next week ~ Carnegie Hall in New York City! That ole Dorothy Kilgallen in the New York Times [sic] wrote 'Everybody should get out of town because the hillbillies are coming!' Well, at least we ain't standin' on New York street corners with itty-bitty cans in our hands collecting coins to keep up the opera and symphonies. Miss Dorothy called us Nashville performers 'the gang' from the Grand Ole Opry ~ 'hicks from the sticks.' And if I have the pleasure of seeing that wicked witch, I'll tell her how proud I am to be a 'hick from the sticks!'" At some time after her Carnegie Hall performance, Patsy also said the following upon learning that Kilgallen had not attended the concert: "She was chicken to show her face!"
