Strolling down Memory lane

I always enjoy looking at oters people´s youtubes. Hope you do too.

Music means a lot to me but I'm not a great consumer. I don't download and I don't buy records, I listen to the radio or to music other people around me play, or sing and play myself.
I love Johnny Mercer and the Andrew sisters. A more modern love is Fairground Attraction. And Eddie Reader probably influenced me more than I realized at the time, can't you tell?

Here he is, Johnny singing with Margaret Whiting - the weather has actually been very wintery so it's approproate in every way.

One more, The Andrew sisters; this is their notion of how people in Harlem, NY, used to greet each other. I don't know, I've never been to Harlem, but it doesn't feel like it's ever been a custom - but maybe I'm wrong and LaVerne, Maxene and Patty really did know the Harlem ways. But the clip is cute and the song is happy in it's innocence.
