This past year …

Autumn Music

Happy first full week of Autumn to all the Old School Music Lovers!

After three false starts, three web hosts,  and three IP providers — I am really and truly  back!   It was as if  “demons” had conspired against me to keep me from returning to regular blogging. 

In this past year away from you I have learned a lot about what *not* to do,  and where *not* to go,   and how *not* to move blogs from host to host. These were some  costly ($$$)  lessons,  but I learned from them.

My first post back is to remind you that I have continually been keeping up with the news in the world of Old School Pop Music and I wanted to remind you of some of those musical icons we lost that I was unable to blog here about.

Click on the links  below to read the Obituaries published in the NY Times for some of those we have lost.

I will focus on tributes to those that transitioned in this past year in Old School Pop for the remainder of the Month of September.
