My “Hello World” first post says it all for now. I will just add that I was “Simpsonized” as you can see in my photo stage left (LOL).
Seriously, at this moment in time I’d like to talk about the music, rather than me. Thanks for reading and please keep stopping by. Initially I began presenting you some of my favorite oldies every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Effective November 2008 I will be posting oldies every Monday and Thursday (except USA Monday Federal Holidays, USA Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Week). Those down times will give you a chance to peruse the archives to see posts you may have missed. But I will be sure to share with you any breaking “Oldies Music News” that I come across as it happens.
Also I want to let you know that effective December 2008 all comments and contact forms sent without valid e-mail addresses are deleted upon receipt unread (as are comments submitted for the sole intent of advertising:). A conversation is meant to be a two-way street, so if you write something negative, rude, and or accusatory, then common courtesy demands that you should give a valid e-mail address so that I can give you the benefit of a response either personally or on the site (whichever is more appropriate).
I have noticed, in my short blogging experience, that the critics never leave valid e-mail addresses so I have decided to take this new tactic to avoid these distractions. (Ironically these attackers are the ones in error and I could tell them so if they only had submitted a valid e-mail address)
You must give respect to get it: it’s the golden rule!
I appreciate and solicit honest feedback to let me know how I am doing. If you want to make constructive suggestions for songs and/or monthly musical themes I would love to hear them.

Well I have been at this for a while now so I guess my shyness has abated some, or at least to the point that I can share with you one of my favorite pics.
This was taken by my favorite step-mom on my Dad’s 39th birthday, with me being two months away from being aged Sweet 16! We are both dressed in the hippest of 1971 fashions aren’t we now? Stripes and plaids were all the rage then: really they were. So was Dad’s “Superfly” fur coat and the blonde furniture and paneling.
Daddy is sitting on the blonde stereo unit that I first heard so many of the classics that I am sharing with you now here at OSML. I found this photo in my Dad’s things after he passed and it is the third best gift he gave me. The first is the gift of my life and the second being the gift of music — which is what this blog is all about.
Love and Hugs,
