Have You Visited Pawtucket RI?
Q: JIM: Have you ever been to Pawtucket, Rhode Island? Of all your songs, my favorite is "Rhode Island Redhead" (from Pawtucket) since Pawtucket is my hometown. I have the album, "Teresa Brewer," and it's one of my all-time favorites. The first song I ever heard you sing was "Music! Music! Music!" at a roller skating rink here in Pawtucket. Your voice was the greatest and, from then on, I was hooked. Thanks, Teresa, for giving us fans so much joy over the years.
A: TERESA: "No, I've never been to Pawtucket, though I've been invited a few times -- as recent as a couple of years ago, as a matter of fact. It was for a celebration that your hometime was having -- maybe its bicentennial. Prior commitments made it impossible for me to accept the invitation, though. You know, I am always amazed the legs that that song has. So many people tell me that 'Rhode Island Redhead' is one of their favorite songs -- and it wasn't even a hit!"
