  1. sondan,

    nice list..

    themusicologist

  2. 95% of your music favorites coincide with my like, but being of hispanic origin, I have a few more. Like Freddy Fender, Joe Bataan, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Gloria Estefan and I would never omit the Jefferson Starship. GREAT WEB PAGE! I Dj’d FM in the early 80’s.

  3. Hi Jack.

    I am so glad you found me and I really appreciate both the compliment and your visit.

    I too like Tito, Gloria and Freddy Fender. Especially Freddy! He was pretty cool and very, very versatile. I always thought it odd that he was characterized in the Country music Category because I think his music was very universal.

    I am not that familiar with Celia Cruz’s work, but my sister is a fanatic when it comes to Miss Cruz. You and she should talk ;-). Plus I guess I’d better give her some listening time since you and I have such similar tastes in music. If she’s alright with you I’d better listen up.

    Please keep on schooling me Mr. DJ. I an very open to anything when it comes to GOOD music.

    I hope you visit again soon to chat.

    Take Care,
    SonDan

    • Hey lady – just found this comment. sorry it got burried. All is well here and as always I thank you, albeit late, for you kind words of encouragement. Hope your summer (and your blogs) are all going ok. Hugs. SonDan.

  6. Great list. I’ve been trying to leave comments for a while, but nothing is posting. hmmm… I hope this works. Keep up the excellent work.

    • Gotcha. Here I am Again I apologisz for these 2 posts of yours getting buried. I probably should turn off moderated comments — but I worried that a bunch of spam and foul language posts might get through and appear before I can delete them. I am gonna try to do better and come up with an alternative method so this won’t happen again. Please accept my humble apology dear HD.

  7. I CAN REMEMBER BEING IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL,LISTENING TO THE OLDER GUYS PLAYING JOHNNY ACE, OTIS REDDING,CHANTELS,
    JOHNNY & JOE, SHEP/LIMELIGHTERS, OV WRIGHT,FALCONS,MITTER COLLIER,DANLEERS,LEE
