People today just don’t sing enough. It’s wonderful to be
entertained by so much good music on radio and who would change
that? Though few of us can sing like Sinatra, Como, Jimmie
Rodgers or Ella Fitzgerald and Doris Day, we can all get a
“lift” out of joining in on the chorus. And you’ll get a good
start in the right direction by joining us for the community
sing we have every day at 10:55 AM on the RECORD SHOP. It won’t
replace opera but it’s fun!
