What's New?

A short newsletter as the wife and I will be leaving this week for vacation and headed to Kansas to meet up with her three sisters and their husbands. One of her sisters recently purchased a home on acerage and invited the family out for a long overdue get together.  Should be fun and relaxing...I'm a front porch guy myself and the family might find me here....

Follow-up To Jukebox Memories.

Received some warm comments on the July newsletter article "Moments in Time" and especially a line from the song "Jukebox in my mind." The verse and a particular line are a reference to how I write stories for my Vinyl Record Memories.

Most notable were those who have lost a loved one. The line -- "To the days when you were mine," brought back those fond memories shared over the decades with that special someone. I've decided to add "Jukebox In My Mind" as my next song for those very special visitors. Stay tuned...

August 16, 1977
A Sad Day In Music History.

It has become an annual ritual to gather at Graceland on the anniversary of Elvis' death, August 16th, 1977. Many fans cherish the possibility that Elvis might still be rockin' tonight.

Remember having your shirt collar turned up Elvis style on your multicolored pin-stripped shirt and your duck tail hair cut?

Close your eyes and you'll soon find yourself hanging out with your best friends at one of those Friday night school dances more than sixty years ago when Elvis established himself as the "King of Rock 'n' Roll."

Elvis is my all-time favorite entertainer. In reality, certainly, someone, somewhere, is playing his song at any moment. It is amazing that Elvis still draws this kind of attention 42 years after his death.

What's Next?

I plan to have Jukebox In My Mind ready sometime in September, 2019.  Stay tuned...
