Dear readers,

In case you’re wondering about my musical selections,they are not chosen randomly.  Growing up I was fortunate to live in a  house where music played an important role in our daily routine. My father loved all genre of music and taught his children to appreciate the artist talent of each performer. We danced and song as a form of entertainment, instead of watching Television.  However, were  two shows we did watch together,  American Band Stand, and Soul Train. One of my fathers’ favorite singers Sam Cooke. My vinyl Classics:

Aretha Franklin: Natural Women ( composed by Carol King), The Five Heartbeats: A house is a heart, The man in black himself, Johnny Cash: Walk the Line, The elements of the world, Earth, Wind & Fire: Lets Groove, Ray Charles: Georgia, Representing the women in Country music, Ms. Loretta Lynn: Coal miners Daughter, Benny Goodman: Sing, Sing, Sing, Duke Ellington: Take the A Train, Cab Calloway: Hi De Ho
