Caruso in Song

      Twenty songs as sung by the great Enrico Caruso. I think
  you will agree with me that this man has been what many
  have termed a "Vocal God." No words can adequately
  describe the heart and soul that pours from this great tenor.
       I sincerely hope you enjoy this podcast and will comment as you wish.

Renata and Charlie

 Who is that lady with Charlie???????????????

It is like this: At a party in 1955, she grabbed my hand and said, "Dammi il braccio mio piccino"(Boheme quote with a gender change). I then said,
" Obbedisco,signoraaaa."  (Even then I knew the words.).Someone happened to snap our picture. This experience will live in my heart forever as a happy memory of one of the sweetest people I ever knew.
