Mutual's Denver station, KIMN, reports heavy fan mail pouring in from all parts of the country on the Gil Houston show, which is aired daily for 15 minutes, 7:15 -7:30 EST, over the Mutual web, via WOR, New York, from the originating Denver station. The singing balladeer's folk songs run the gamut from the "One-Hundred Mile Train" to "The Story of Davy Crockett." Houston's latest on Decca is "Crazy Heart," with a brace of new ones slated for release in mid-summer.
