Personalities | Rosalie Allen | Cowboys & Playboys | Country

(Vocals, 1924–2003)

Rosalie Allen was one of a number of western stars who called New York home, for despite being seemingly removed from anything remotely western, the city boasted a thriving scene. Born Julie Bedra in Pennsylvania, Allen idolized Patsy Montana and became an adept yodeller. From 1943, she was a star on New York radio. In addition to recording successfully for RCA, including popular duets with Elton Britt, she became a popular dj before fading from the scene after the mid-1950s.
