Wow. That Boone piece is um... odd to say the least.

The Shirelles piece and vid is something I had not seen and really instructive in terms of what happened then, and what's happpening now.

Thanks for posting this vid. Very powerful.

Wow! I had not seen that film clip, and I probably wouldn't have looked except for the comment above. Thanks, Cany, for leading me to such a reflective piece.

I remember watching Pat Boone on tv at the neighbor's house, and that's just what it was like - except we still had black/white then.

Saw Pat Boone live when I was in Junior High. He did a show in Warren, OH. I sat behind his wife. We were all divided between Boone and Elvis. I couldn't stand Elvis who couldn't sing on pitch.
