Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Connie Haines R.I.P

Band singer from the 1940s Connie Haines death is reported in today's Guardian. I remember her as the vocalist with Tommy Dorsey who duetted with Sinatra on one of those songs with an unforgetable title - "Snootie Little Cutie". I'm sure everyone either knows or has met someone who fitted that description. Thanks again to RC; our man on the graveyard shift. Click here for Guardian obit.
