Concluding a tradition I have been doing for years, but skipped last year.
This year I felt like bringing it back.
It’s a celebration of the lives of those we lost in the previous year- in this case 2010.
Mostly, it’s an Irish Wake!
Many of these people have undoubtedly touched you in some way, shape or form, and made your life a bit happier and more pleasant.
For the musical folks who passed on, they are deserving of one more play, at least.
And we will deal with some other cultural figures as well, from TV, movies, etc.
You are welcome to anticipate or second-guess my own musical choices!
And I always realize after awhile that for those who didn't know about the demise of some of these people, I am the resented Bearer Of Bad News!
Well, somebody's gotta do it, lol!
In this fourth and final episode, those selected are:
Mike Edwards (a bad year for those named Edwards, this is the 3rd one on these shows)
Plus a return to Television, complete with a singing performance by Leslie Nielsen.
And wrapping it all up with the incomparable voice of Fred Foy, a name you may not recognize but his contribution to our culture you should find unforgettable!
For these folks we pay tribute to and memorialize, they can’t give any more than they have.
Till next year...
