Do You Remember

NPR has a great interactive feature on their website right now remembering musicians who died this year including, among others, Estelle Bennett (pictured above at far right) of the Ronettes, and Joe Cuba, the king of Latin Boogaloo, pictured below.

I also really enjoyed a story I heard on NPR in the car yesterday, driving back from Idaho, about a man in Monroe GA who has been clipping obituaries from the newspaper and pasting them into scrapbooks for over 50 years. They haven't posted the audio yet but you can click here for the story and hopefully they'll post it soon.
