"A Solstice Garland" December 14, 2007

(Week 103)

This end-0f-season RADIOLA! was compiled hurriedly on Friday after a week of medical appointments and other intrusive aspects of real life. As a special treat, I've included the 1965 interview Richard Lamparski did with Connee and Vet Boswell for his "Whatever Happened To" series. This will be the last new RADIOLA! for about a month--WHCL is on Winter Break until after MLK Day.

Any show with Red Nichols' "Margie" & bunches of Boswells discs is a real winner....and thanks for the Lamparski interview, too......
