This Just In...
For our friend John, my 78rpm of “Clementine” features Bing but not the Andrews Sisters. It’s still pretty zippy and self-mocking as Bing asks at one point “Do I sound like Gene Autry?” I still think he did another one with the Andrews Sisters.
Also, Mr. John Hayes, whose excellent blog, Robert Frost’s Banjo, having recently received the Superior Scribbler’s award, has passed it along to me.
My sincere thanks to John, and to the blogs named below to which I now pass along the Superior Scribblers award.
Here are the rules:
1. Name five other Superior Scribblers to receive this award.
2. Link to the author and name of the blog that gave you the award.
3. Display the award on your blog with this LINK which explains the award.
4. Click on the award at the bottom of the link and add your name to the bottom of the list.
5. Post the rules.
To Campaspe at the Self-Styled Siren for her wit, her intelligence, and her stunning prose on the subject classic film.
To a newer blog “Silents and Talkies” where the artistry of film is so deftly interpreted by the artist Kate Gabrielle.
To a couple of regional blogs which are so important on this world-connected Internet for keeping alive and vibrant our local identities:
In the Valley and…
Exploring Western Mass., which both deal with the sights, the histories, and the current state of western Massachusetts.
Finally, to Rand’s Esoteric OTR, an excellent resource on classic radio programs, and the many he provides for download from their original transcripted recordings.
Congratulations to all, and thank you for your wonderful blogs.
