The first Saturday of May is the day that the Tulsa Police Department honors its fallen. This year marks the 100th year Anniversary of Tulsa’s first line of duty death (Sgt. John Herrod who died November 9, 1917, as the result of a gunshot wound when his pistol accidentally fell out of its holster).  Here is a touching version of “Amazing Grace” . . . rest in piece, brothers and sisters.   We will never forget.

Peter and the Wolf!

Happy Birthday Sergei Prokofiev (1891)!  Here’s one of his more famous pieces, “Peter and the Wolf” (and one of my favorites as well).  What an entertaining piece to both hold a child’s attention while at the same time teaching about an assortment of orchestral instruments.  Enjoy!

Hello, Dolly!

January 19, 2017

Today, Dolly Parton turns 71 years of age!  She remains a class act and a phenomenal talent . . . and while this performance is a few years old, the song is still one of my all time favorites.   Happy Birthday Dolly, thank you!
