R.I.P. Dorothy McGuire of the McGuire Sisters.
  Sun. 9/9/12 8:31pm Dean Landsman:

From WIkipedia:

In 1968, they retired from public appearances, giving their last performance that year on The Ed Sullivan Show. Phyllis McGuire continued to perform solo for a time. The demise of the group is often attributed to Phyllis' long-standing personal relationship with mobster Sam Giancana (although she has always claimed that their friendship was strictly platonic), which reportedly blacklisted the group. During one of his 1960s court appearances for which Phyllis was subpoenaed, Giancana told reporters outside the courthouse that "Phyllis knows everything" about the rumored, unethical behaviors of John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert. Phyllis has resided in a famously showcased mansion in Las Vegas for decades, boasting its own beauty parlor, a swan moat, and a replica of the Eiffel Tower which actually rises through the home's roof. When asked by Barbara Walters during a 1980s ABC-TV "20/20" interview from within the mansion if any of the money to build the lavish home came from Giancana, Phyllis denied the innuendo, claiming that she invested heavily in oil when the sisters were at the height of their popularity.[4]

If these were movie credits they would be rolling like clouds.
And I don't mean 'internet clouds'.

The physical ones. Water + air.
  Sun. 9/9/12 8:58pm G:

wikipedia: "Sunnyside has produced or nurtured such talents as Ethel Merman, Perry Como, Nancy Walker, Judy Holliday, Joe Spinell, James Caan and Rudy Vallee; artist Raphael Soyer, and writers and social activists such as Lewis Mumford and Suze Rotolo. The Queens-grown punk rock group The Ramones played some of their earliest gigs in Sunnyside pubs during the 1970s.... Legendary jazz musician Bix Beiderbecke, "the remote and mysterious jazz cornettist... died in obscurity" in an apartment building at 43–30 46th Street, in Sunnyside."

I always love the marching band pieces you play. The Florida A&M "Sing Sing Sing" is fabulous. There don't seem to be any commercial releases of these things, are there?
