Mel Street Biography Released

Mountain State Press has just released Mel Street: A Country Legend Gone But Not Forgotten. Written by Dennis Schuler Sr. and Larry J. Delp, the biography chronicles the rise and fall of the Virginia-born country artist who killed himself in 1978 at the height of his career. In addition to interviews with Street’s family and business associates, the book includes transcripts of the singer’s interviews with radio and TV personality Ralph Emery. Street first made the country charts in 1972 with his self-penned “Borrowed Angel.” Among his subsequent hits were “Lovin’ on Back Streets,” “I Met a Friend of Yours Today” and “If I Had a Cheating Heart.” 09/25/02
