I don’t know if the 2009 MusicCares Person of the Year event will be televised, but I’m sure we’ll find out before the Feb. 6 date rolls around. In the meantime, here’s an old Neil Diamond video. And, it’s a Neil Diamond song that probably most of us remember.
That’s all for now. I am checking my mail, so don’t stop writing! I always look forward to hearing form each of you.
