Char,

Re: Lightfoot Medley Kenny Rogers & the First Edition

Good versions. Is it my imagination or was the musical performance pre-recorded? (e g "Early Morning Rain" had a prominent flute, but there was no flautist on camera.)

Re: ROLLING STONE mag.June 11,2019

Re: Gordon mentioned on Jeopardy TV game show

Because the contestants look too young to have been listening to the radio in the early/mid 1970s and are not Canadian, it doesn't surprise me that they didn't know the answer. They may not know the...
