She did it ALL!!!! Not a long career, but

1949-1955 in my view was awesome!

  I was waiting once at the Met stage

  door after a Macbeth. Out comes this

big guy who looked at me and asked,

"Are you Charlie Handelman?" I said

"Yes." He gave me a big hug and 

said,"You are more famous than

me!"  What a fun guy!!!!!!!!!!

 Joe and I have discussed a kind of

"old-fashioned vibrato," which to 

me is  "affectionate."

Hiya,

   My stats for August show you are really enjoying things;however, the videos do not show up in the stats, so I must deduce that the stats are higher.

I still need to work on a glitch or two in order to do new audio podcasts.

                    Love  Charlie

  At the 1972 Rudolf Bing farewell,Regina

came out as Orlovsky and totally

cracked us up with her rendition of

:Chacun a Bing's gout." Knowing how

he treated her, I know she was not

kidding. Trust me!!

Funniest line is "..and ask Corelli twwwwwice." The way she held the "W" is a classic!!!

Paul, my buddy,  8/28/1941. We

sang so much from 1961 at the

Paterson, New Jersey Company.

He became one of the greats, and a 

sweetheart, despite many family

tragedies.

magnificent.
