Wake Up With A Smile

These medleys serve as a musical snapshot of the times so many of us lived in. They are a way to bring listeners briefly back to the days when music was really music and hopefully give your day a little boost.

Here is today’s 23-minute reminder of those days. As always, I hope the music puts a smile on your face. 🙂

Memories … That’s What We’re All About

      Fred, I truly admire the fact that you continue to create your stories even as you face a big day on Friday! You have such a zest for life. ❤️
      I don’t think Neil ever forgot!
      I am keeping my promise. Tomorrow is it for a while and I’m going to explain why it’s necessary. By the way, you re excused from writing tomorrow. You will have better things to do.
      Love Ya!

    Memories, that is what we are all about! This medley sure did put a smile on my face, that continued for the entire medley. I appreciated every song I sang along with most of them, and I remember them all. I guess that’s a good thing! I want you to know how very much I appreciate the time and energy that goes into putting these things together for us. I feel like you are my own personal DJ and I am so grateful. Words could never express how this music touches me each day. From the wonderful intro voice of yours to the blog comments and replies, I am left speechless sometimes. I truly enjoy reading all the blog comments, especially Fred’s!! My dearest wish, is that we all have tomorrow! Ray, you’re the best! 🥰
