Connie Haines R.I.P.

Former band singer Connie Haines passed away on 22 Sept. aged 87; outlived by her 109 year old mother. I remember Connie as the singer who duetted with Sinatra on a Tommy Dorsey side that had a memorable title - "Snootie Little Cutie". I'm sure we've all known or met someone who fitted that description!
Once again I'm indebted to RC, our man on the graveyard shift, for the sad news. Click here for Guardian obituary.
