Among all the dross I write there has been a couple of posts I wrote where afterwards I received a personal email from someone I mentioned or someone associated.
Two spring to mind and one post was about our then ABC reporter in Afghanistan, Sally Sara. In a post I queried along the lines as to why she wore a head scarf when reporting, going native as it used to be called. It was probably something I should have thought through a bit more. She sent me an lovely email and explained why. Of course now I am totally in tune with anything Sally does. She is an excellent reporter and story teller.
The other that comes to mind is when I published a You Tube clip of the late US performer Ruth Wallis. I received a nice email from her son. I really wish I could see a live performance of this online. She was a treat. Her son said, Read your blog (re"Ruth Wallis"). My mother has received more airplay
since her death than during her 30 year career. She was really
considered quite taboo during the Eisenhower era. Here is a video that
was done with her "Ugly Man with Money" track. Hope you get a laugh. I did. Ruth was brilliant and scandalous for the time.
So this is a repeat post of Ruth Wallis singing . I think this is just brilliant and it is certainly catchy.
