Here’s a 1999 article I wrote on legendary Western Swing musician and arranger Larry ‘Pedro’ DePaul for the Journal of Country Music back in 1999. He was the architect behind the sound of the great Spade Cooley and Tex Williams bands of the 1940s.
By the way, knucklehead that I am, I mistranscribed DePaul’s wife’s name in the article. It’s Evelyn, not Beverly. My apologies.Larry Pedro DePaul Article
