Brenda Lee on Japanese Television 

When: Sat., May 29, 1:30 p.m. 2010
At a local beer bar we've been known to frequent, I recently met with a friend to solve all the world's problems. Much bleary babbling later, he revealed a theory his mother had brewed up: Country music β€” with its clearly enunciated lyrics β€” has appeal around the world specifically because people with only a working knowledge of English can understand it. Brenda Lee's career lends credence to this notion. An international sensation following her first overseas tour in 1959, Lee eventually conquered Japan at the tender age of 20 with her recording β€œOne Rainy Night in Tokyo.” This screening features two different Japanese television appearances by Lee in 1965 and 1966. Lee is interviewed through a translator and performs with her band The Casuals.
