  • One digital audio tape (DAT). Born in Kentucky in 1936, Hall was a popular country songwriter-performer in the 1960s and 1970s, with a total of seven #1 hits. He began his career as a teenager performing in a local bluegrass band. After a stint in the US Army and work as a radio deejay, Hall began writing songs for country performers during the 1960s. His songs included "Hello, Vietnam" and "Harper Valley PTA." By the 1970s, he was a popular performer in his own right. In 1986, he retired, and in the 1990s moved to the Florida panhandle. He returned to the business in 1996 with a Florida-inspired album, Song from Sopchoppy, followed by Home Grown in 1997. Billy Dean's performance continues on D99-15.
