Ardis Wells (4th post)

Country Song Roundup, Issue 21 December 1952

With her Rhythm Ranch Gals
Ardis with her racing dogs in the 1970s
portion of a article from an unknown newspaper

I recently became acquainted with Jan North who was in The Rhythm Ranch Gals and The North Sisters.  She had lots of stories about her days with Ardis as well as some newspaper clippings and pictures.  She said Ardis was a good boss, but firm and knew what she wanted.  Many times female singers asked to join the group, but if they didn't play an instrument Ardis would send them packing.

I found this record recently, quite by accident.  The guy said it had been in his inventory for 20 years, until I came along.  Couldn't believe it was on $2.

The Lovegren listed on the label was Nancy Lovegren, a musician about whom I don't know anything.  Jan tells me she still is still around but I couldn't find a contact for her.
