    1. There are a lot of people my age and younger and a lot younger that listens to old school music and love. Most of them deplore the bubblegum pop music of today.

  2. When my brother called me and to tell me about my idols death, I didn’t believe him. I thought that he was joking,but reality hit when I seen it on the news. Ironically, I checked her autobiography out last week to read. I may have been a youngin..around 6 or 7..when I first of her,but I loved her songs(However, when my folks listened to ” Love to Love You”, they hurried up and shut it off to keep my sibs and me from listening to it..lol). No doubt that she will be missed. My thoughts and prayer to her family.
