Listener comments!

  6:54pm Peter:

Hi Charlie from New Zealand. Just to say thanks for the great weekly programmes. Try to listen regularly & enjoy the mix of music, particularly the older things, presented in a very relaxed format. Wondering if you have an old recording by Victor Young's Orch called "Toy Tiger" The theme from a 1950s movie I think. Came out on 78 & 45 but I've not seen it for 40 odd years. Maybe one of the other presenters on WFMU might know of it. One other track off an LP/CD release that I can't find is by Cleo Laine. A Neil Sedaka song called "I Am A Song, Sing Me". Do you have that one?
Whatever; thanks again from the Pacific for great music played with style.
  9:01am Charlie:

Thanks for your comments, Peter. I don't know those two records, but your request has piqued my curiosity, especially "Toy Tiger," which is by Henry Mancini (I'm a big fan), so I will keep my eyes open for them. Thanks for the suggestions!
