Years ago after a long day at work and a demanding time fixing dinner and attending to the needs of my family, I was happy to relax at last.
Whether it meant winding up the Victrola inherited from mom and dad or just putting a “forty-five” in our record player later, music did the trick. Songs like “Dock of the Bay,” “You Made Me Love You,” or “Why Do You Treat Me Like You Do?” will forever remain with me.
However with the strides made in new technology, I can enjoy “For Sentimental Reasons” and many old songs formerly recorded by Billy Eckstine, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat King Cole and others by switching on Channels 447 and 446 without changing a record or fixing a broken needle. That is just one of the gifts of being around this long. To continue to close my eyes and review the world of music.
