Johnny Horton – North To Alaska – Grandma’s Favorite Song

Johnny Horton in an amazing live performance of the soundtrack of the John Wayne movie North To Alaska. This was my Grandmother’s favorite song. Grandma and Grandpa would listen to the Grand Ole Opry on a Saturday when my Mom was a little girl in the 1930s and 40s. My Grandma would listen to the radio and write the words to the songs on the wall of her kitchen as she worked so she could learn them. Sixty years later she could still recite songs and poems she’d heard as a little girl. If you look close, you can see Mordecai the dog behind Grandma.
