Jackson 5 and The Osmonds

Grew up with Michael Jackson and Donny Osmond. We were roughly the same age. They were musical prodigies and the rest of the world was blessed to enjoy their Family entertainment mega-success.

The 1960’s Pop radio influenced countless young people.

My dad was a professional drummer. He also worked five and a half days (every week) at the Town Paper Mill. After work Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, Dad (Jack) gave several hours of 30-minute drum lessons in our living room.

My Aunt, Jack’s younger sister, went on to become an Elementary School Music teacher. She has always been and continues to be a Church organist.

My contribution to music is simple and microscopic – a primal love for what music does to the human spirit.
