I will be directing the Retired Men’s Service Club Chorus performing some patriotic music for the American Legion sponsored Memorial Day Ceremony at 10:00 am, Monday in Wilson, NY. This will include our “American Salute” — a medley of US Armed Forces anthems. We’ve been participating over the past few years. It is a wonderful event and the weather forecast looks beautiful.

Ray Manzarek dies at 74; keyboardist for the Doors – latimes.com.
I loved his organ solo on the album cut of “Light My Fire”. I think the popularity of the lengthy album version helped boost FM radio since it was too long for AM airplay. It helped mark the beginning of the FM AOR (Album Oriented Rock) radio format and the beginning of the end for AM radio’s influence in the music we listened to.
RIP, Ray Manzarek – AOR Pioneer
