    The Wayward Wind by Gogi Grant. The year I graduated from high school, you couldn't turn on the (AM) radio without hearing this. There was just enough sentiment for our teen hearts that we lapped it up. Oh yes, and there was Gogi Grant's voice. Come to think of it, I still like her voice.

    “If they cut off both hands, I will compose music anyway holding the pen in my teeth.” (Dmitri Shostakovich)

    “Whereas other modern composers are engaged in manufacturing cocktails of every hue and description, I offer the public cold spring water.” (Jean Sibelius)

    “Once down is no battle.” (Alan Furst)

    I should apologise for this post but felt I had to share.
    I was subjected to hearing this as a child in the early sixties each time I visited my Grandmothers at Christmas time, which probably explains a lot

    Does this not constitute child abuse?
