Timi's hit "Hurt" did find a place in the AFRTS library and was a favorite among the troops where I was stationed. Since we didn't get any of the publicity and press items about the music we received, we really didn't know a lot of the inside info.
That's why we would get requests to play that song by the Japanese singer. To our ears stationed in far north Japan, the name Timi Yuro sounded Japanese. It was several months before we finally got the real story.
