James Taylor What I grew up with and saw most of these acts at the State Theater in Hartford CT. Brook Benton and Connie Francis where the last headliners for The Sate Theater ( it cost me about $2.50) when they closed down around 1960. I was there as well since 1955 for every show.

10 things you didn't know about me. 1) I really like chocolate I will eat it every chance I get it is in my diet every chance I get. 2) I like music and movies from before my time, examples; Doris Day, The Boswell Sisters, Art Mooney, Ella Fitzgerald, The Andrew Sisters, Frank Sinatra, Connie Francis, and Dean Martin. Movies--not as many as the artists but I'm still expanding those horizon's as well. The Wizard of Oz,The Girl can't help it, Willy Wonka and The chocolate Factory, The Breakfast Club, and Ghoulies. 3) Two people who are Hollywood actresses who I look up to who I think know how to hold themselves in the industry where they work are; Mariska Hargitay and Emmy Rossum. 4) I've always loved movies from a very young age. I'm still a movie Fanatic today. 5) My first role model growing up was Joan of arc. 6) I wish I knew how to speak these languages; Spanish, Italian, and French. 7) I can recite almost every line from these movies, Matilda, The Phantom of the opera, and Joan of arc. 8 ) I love perf ...

We've scheduled a date for the beginning of our next grand music special, The Top 100 Female Artists of the Rock Era*. It will kick off November 21 with much fanfare and celebration! This countdown tracks the top solo female performers and all-female groups of the Rock Era. Note: It does not include a female's performance in a group, unless of course that group is an all-female group. That project would be named something such as The Top 100 Women of the Rock Era. When the Rock Era was in its infancy, you had Easy Listening artists such as Patti Page, Connie Francis, the McGuire Sisters, Gale Storm and Kay Starr contributing songs to the popular culture. Soon, Brenda Lee burst onto the scene, and music was beginning to change. Girl groups soon became the hot trend, with the Shirelles starting in the early part of the 1960's, followed closely by the Crystals, the Chiffons, the Ronettes, and the Supremes. Then in 1964, the Beatles changed music forever. We make that point often because its important ...

In Billboard's 55 or so year history 8 songs have been number one on the week ending on the 4th of July (gee, what are the odds) and they are: 1960: Everybody's Somebody's Fool, Connie Francis. 1964: I Get Around, The Beach Boys. 1970: The Love You Save, The Jackson 5. 1981: Bette Davis Eyes, Kim Carnes. 1987: I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me), Whitney Houston. 1992: Baby Got Back, Sir Mix-a-Lot. 1998: The Boy is Mine, Brandy and Monica. 2009: Boom Boom Pow, Black Eyed Peas. We have made a lot of interesting choices for our Independence Days but unfortunately not interesting enough to warrant an episode.screw it, I'll tweak it somehow.

In the UK, it reached She would later reveal that she recorded the song in just two takes. 1964 June 27 Peter And Gordon's "World Without Love" reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Paul McCartney wrote the song, but it was not credited to him on the disc, to see if a McCartney tune would be successful even if no one knew he had written it. At the time he composed "World Without Love", McCartney was courting Jane Asher, the sister of the duo's Peter Asher.

In 1950, "Honky Tonk Blues" was recorded by the immortal Hank Williams. In 1959, Connie Francis sang "Lipstick On Your Collar" and Brook Benton sang "Endlessly" on CBS-TV's "The Ed Sullivan Show." In 1961, Patsy Cline and her brother Sam were involved in a head-on collision in Madison, Tennessee. She was thrown into the windshield by the impact and sustained major head, wrist, and hip injuries, requiring a month of hospitalization. The driver of the other car and her six-year-old son died as a result of their injuries. In 1961, after a performance in Newcastle, England, rockabilly singer Gene Vincent was mobbed by admirers who accidentally pushed him down a flight of stairs and knocked him unconscious. In 1961, Elvis Presley's 7th feature film, "Wild In The Country," co-starring Hope Lange, Tuesday Weld, John Ireland, and Millie Perkins, opened in U.S. and Canadian movie theaters.

My apologies to Edward Padilla; He did indeed get the Connie Francis song correct, I didn't see it until after that last post; Leatherboy still gets his 1/2 for artist. That will be regular from now on: 1 point to fill the blanks (will not always be the title) and 1/2 point for primary artist. SCORES: Jay Kuperman=2; Leatherboy Dave=2 1/2; Edward Padilla=1
Time's up on the Musical Memories unsolved query; Leatherboy Dave gets 1/2 point for knowing the artist (Connie Francis). The correct title: WHERE THE BOYS ARE. Next puzzle: "...So I dropped the drink in my hand and to the window I ran; and as I rode away i could hear her say to Jose _ _ _ ___ _." 0

The Beatles & My Part In Their Success. Although classical music and opera was the go in our household when I was growing up popular music had significant impact in the late 1950s. My sister who is 3 years older was keen on Bill Haley, Elvis and Karl Denver singing 'Wimoweh'. I liked many of the performers from her era particularly Dion, Fabian, Paul Anka, Connie Francis and Bobby Rydell but as a budding guitarist in 1960 it was The Shadows who really took my fancy. I loved that twangy Hank Marvin sound with catchy tape echo. My parents wanted me to learn piano. My sister was already having lessons with a Brisbane music legend but he used to rap her knuckles with a ruler when she played wrong notes and I was put off. He'd been in the RAAF and flew Lockheed P38 Lightning fighters against the Japanese so was no slouch. What's a bit of pain when there's a glittering prize at the end - keyboard proficiency. Instead, I had lessons with Nat Greiner who operated out of Grice-Nicholsons in George Street, now the ...

lil insight of who lee is:this is for my mother to meet an icon brenda joy meets Brenda Lee forv the first time:) About Brenda Lee Musician/Band Brenda Mae Tarpley (born December 11, 1944), known as Brenda Lee, is an American performer who sang rockabilly, pop and country music, and had 37 US chart hits during the 1960s, a number surpassed only by Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Ray Charles and Connie Francis. She is best known for her 1960 hit "I'm Sorry", and 1958's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree", a US holiday standard for more than 50 years. At 4 ft 9 inches tall, she received the nickname Little Miss Dynamite in 1957 after recording the song "Dynamite"; and was one of the earliest pop stars to have a major contemporary international following. Lee's popularity faded in the late 1960s as her voice matured, but she continued a successful recording career by returning to her roots as a country singer with a string of hits through the 1970s and 1980s. She is a member of the Rock and Roll, Country Music a ...

Bobby Darin (born Walden Robert Cassotto; May 14, 1936 – December 20, 1973) was an American singer, songwriter, and actor of film and television. He performed in a range of music genres, including pop, rock, jazz, folk, and country. He started as a songwriter for Connie Francis, and recorded his own first million-seller "Splish Splash" in 1958. This was followed by "Dream Lover", "Mack the Knife", and "Beyond the Sea", which brought him world fame. In 1962, he won a Golden Globe for his first film Come September, co-starring his first wife, Sandra Dee (m. 1960–1967). Throughout the 1960s, he became more politically active and worked on Robert Kennedy's Democratic presidential campaign. He was present on the evening/morning of June 4-5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles at the time of Kennedy's assassination. The same year, he discovered that he had been brought up by his grandparents, not his parents, and that the girl he thought was his sister was actually his mother. These events deeply a ...

One of pop's most enigmatic voices has emerged with her first album in nine years. Agnetha Faltskog's new album sees her duet with Gary Barlow and collaborate with Britney Spears' Swedish songwriting team. Just don't call her "mysterious". Forty-five years ago, before Abba were even a twinkle in Eurovision's eye, Agnetha Faltskog made her very first TV appearance. Aged just 17, she performed Jag Var Sa Kar (I Was So In Love), a syrupy self-penned waltz, on Swedish TV show Studio 8. The melancholy lyrics, inspired by her idol Connie Francis, were a stark contrast to the exuberant blonde singer, who "took the radio in my arms and danced around" when she first heard her single on the air. Little did she know, misery would become her musical forte, especially when she teamed up with Benny, Bjorn and Anni-Frida to form Abba. The songs on which Faltskog took lead vocals - Hasta Manana, The Name Of The Game, Chiquitita - were the band's biggest tear-jerkers. On The Winner Takes I ...
