With a million neon rainbows burning below me, And a million blazing taxis raising a roar, Here I sit, above the town, In my pet pailleted gown, Down in the depths On the ninetieth floor. While the crowds in all the nightclubs punish the parquet, And the bars are packed with couples calling for more, I’m deserted and depressed In ... Read More »

This particular movie also ... Read More »
When I was young, my favorite holiday song was Sleigh Ride. I didn’t care who performed it. I liked every version. I was so disappointed when the holidays were through and for some reason everyone stopped playing Sleigh Ride. I didn’t have the money to buy the music, so all I could do was wait for the holiday season. When ... Read More »

These included Stagecoach (which introduced us to John Wayne), The Wizard of Oz, Good Bye, Mr. Chips and Gone with the Wind. I believe 1959 and 1960 were the golden age for television. At least for ... Read More »
