Deckman why do singers take so long to start? (174* d) RE: why do singers take so long to start? 20 Aug 15


To have a working repertoire of several thousand songs is not uncommon. The late David Spence, of California in the early 1960's, certainly attained this. Also the late John Dwyer could rattle off songs at a mention that would give pause to any collector. Don Firth is certainly in that same crowd. But by far, the most astounding of all is Paddy Grabber, of N.W. Canada.

Many years ago, the late Walt Robertson and I used to entertain ourselves, ususally when we were driving to new fishing fishing hole, by creating entire (and very silly)conversations using nothing more than phrases from one song or ballad after another.

It's great way to keep your mind and memory alert, and it doesn't hurt anyone. Besides ... it's free! CHEERS, bob(deckman)nelson
