Milt Dickey On Westport & The Story Of A Love Lost To Technology

In what might be the first (and only?) record label established solely to promote the musical stylings of children, Westport Records existed in Kansas City, Mo. from 1955 - 1962.

Westport put out a handful of great hillbilly, rockabilly, and r&b records, by artists such as Milt Dickey, Alvis Wayne, & Big Bob Dougherty.
