OK...It was the second comment. Anyway, thanks for bringing music from another era into our homes and computers.

Fifth comment! Woo hoo!
  Tue. 9/30/08 7:16pm Sean Daily:

It's funny that the song "Singing in the Rain" was recorded in 1929. The MOVIE "Signing in the Rain" was set at the dawn of the talkie era in Hollywood... which was right around 1929.
  Tue. 9/30/08 7:29pm Joe:

Not a coincidence, actually!
  Tue. 9/30/08 7:29pm Plinky:

  Tue. 9/30/08 7:45pm Scott:

Thanks DJ Joe

Hi Joe! I'm so sorry I missed the first two sets - can't wait to catch up. Hard times indeed, but when you're on our happy days are here again.
