Moon River

I have loved Andy Williams for many years. Growing up with his television show added so much to my life.  Moma and Daddy always had his albums, including this one pictured above.  When we lived in Missouri, I was able to see him at his Moon River Theater.  He was as talented and personable on stage as he was on television.

I lament the passing of Andy, but also the passing of his era of music and television. There are no musical programs on anymore suitable for the family to watch together.  There used to be so many! The Andy Williams Show, the Ed Sullivan Show, Lawrence Welk--even Carol Burnett's great comedy show featured marvelous musical guests. Our children have grown up with this type of music, and they don't seem to mind.
Andy would be pleased . . . .
