The Return of Rockabilly Queen Wanda Jackson

Only Available in Archive Formats.

Wanda Jackson has always been one of the boys. Back in the 1950s, when country music started to rock, Jackson made waves with a bold voice and sultry stage moves. She dated Elvis and toured constantly, but slowly slipped from the spotlight. Now she's back and is the subject of a new PBS documentary. NPR's Neda Ulaby reports for All Things Considered.
