I want to express my sincere appreciation to Jonathan Schwartz for getting me interested in listening to the American Standards. I used to sit around home waiting for my wife to complete dinner, nursing a gin and tonic and listening to him on xm radio. When each song was playing I would look to see who was singing. XM , when it was on Direct tv, would also include the album title as well as the artist. I have purchased many cds' of these albums, and now listen to them on my multi-play (15) cd player.
I grew up in the 50's and 60's, so rock and pop were my choice. I can remember ignoring these artist and songs when they appeared on Ed Sullivan and other show. I now wish I had paid attention. than goodness for u-tube.
again many thanks. I miss you on XM. I will try listening online.
