A DAY EARLY – Happy VALENTINES ALL!

Years ago when I worked at Capitol Records, I often got calls from critics who wrote for music magazines requesting the newest record releases and any tidbits about them so they could write their columns. Believe it or not, poet and singer Rod McKuen was a music critic and a lover of classical music. (side note: he’s actually written some classical pieces).Anyway, Rod and I became fast friends and I’ve never forgotten that Valentine’s Day was his favorite holiday of the year. He went crazy. Everyone he knew got cards and gifts from him. He felt a day set aside to honor LOVE should be celebrated to the hilt!! I agree. It doesn’t have to just be a day for lovebirds but it’s day to tell everyone in your life that you love them. So happy hearts everyone! I wish you happy hearts, today and always!
