Special social commentary:
I used to try to "grab people's attention" when I had something important to say. Not anymore . . . In view of today's political environment I don't want to get caught "grabbing" anything!!! Seriously, this is not funny. Especially if you're the one being grabbed. Personally I have never been grabbed myself. Apparently I fall below people's "grabbable" standards. That's OK . . . I'll get over it! In the meantime I hope those folks, who have been "grabbed", keep those reports coming. Perhaps, in time, people will learn to keep their hands to themselves!
Great stuff on the Turntable today. First up . . "The Colorado Trail" by The Kingston Trio! The flipSide features Earl Stephen Bishop. Probably don't remember his name but I'm sure you'll remember the music!
Till Next week / be safe and I'll see you on the Turntable!

The Colorado Trail is a traditional American cowboy song, collected and published in 1927 by Carl Sandburg in his American Songbag. Sandburg says that he learned the song from Dr. T. L. Chapman, of Duluth, Minnesota, who heard it from a badly injured cowboy being treated in his hospital. The cowboy sang it, and many others, to an audience of patients in his ward. The song got its widest attention from its 1960 recording by The Kingston Trio.
