    I had the privilege meeting Miss Starr around 1992, and she was the kindest, most gracious host ever! We laughed and chatted about many things, and it was a dream come true! She can still belt out a song. Truly elegant, Miss Starr is truly a star! Thank you for this great post- I appreciate it.

    I remember singing this song as a child of the 50′s on one of those penny arcade record making machines. WOW! What memories. Always a great song! Thanks.

  12. medialacer says:

    Thank you so much for that information!

    Memories! Kay Starr was one of those female vocalists I just loved as a teenager in high school and college, as well as my years in the military. Juke boxes in soda shoppes, the Student Union at the University of Maryland – Go Terps! :-) and in the PX at Fort Jackson, SC during my first 4 or 5 months. She, Kitty Kallen, Georgia Gibbs, Jaye P Morgan, Teresa Brewer – I loved them all. Some of them have passed on, but some are still living and hopefully having fun, even if they’re not singing.
