Bill Nettles
and His Dixie Blue Boys
Born:  March 13, 1907
Died:  April 5, 1967

Long about 1954 or so, Bill Nettles was playing his kind of hillbilly music for the folks over radio station KNOE out of Monroe, Louisiana. They were calling him "Hadacol Boogie" back then. Bill and his band, the Dixie Blueboys were also appearing on KNOE-TV and doing personal appearances throughout the Southwest in those days.

He had just cut a few sides for the Diamond Recording Company then, over in Jackson, Mississippi. Some of those titles included:

  • When My Kitten Starts Cattin' Around
  • Rhumba A Little Bit of Everything
  • Be Fair With Your Heart
  • Don't Let YOur Lips Say Yes (Your Heart Say No)
