The Soundtrack For The Baby Boomer Generation

Step back to a time when singers were as bright as the stars in the heavens
and the music they sang was really swingin'. Stacks of wax to fit every occasion!

April Stevens' Autobiography

I've just been alerted by April herself that her autobiography, "Teach Me Tiger," has been published.  As you know, here on Music For Every Mood, we've spotlighted April and her fabulous voice before with a post, Teach Me Tiger, and it's appropriate seeing as how that's also the title she's chosen for her book.  I'm sure you'll be interested in reading all about her life - from the beginning.  Or as she put it best - "My life from a little girl in Niagara Falls, N.Y. to the present is “between the covers,” as they say, including 26 photos."  So, be sure and get your copy today!  Congratulations, April - I hope you have even more success with this endeavor!

Patti Page R.I.P.

I just learned today that the great American singer and performer Patti Page died on January 1st, 2013.  As you may know, I provided regular updates for her here, here and here, and she was also active on the concert circuit as well.  Her manager would always post me with updates of where she would be performing.  From a recent news article about her:  She sold more than 100 million records and since her first hit in 1947, the singer never stopped touring and singing.

I have to say that she will be greatly missed and my condolences go out to her family and friends.  She was a great lady.
