This stunning song is perfect for Memorial Day. The entire album, “Revival,” by Radney Foster is one of my favorites.
And while we’re on the subject of memorials, this month has not been kind to entertainment and sports icons from my childhood. In the past two weeks, we’ve lost:
• Tim Conway: Oh, how you made us all laugh. Especially Harvey.
• Doris Day: Que sera sera. The TV shows. The movies with Cagney, Hitchcock and especially Rock Hudson. And that day in 1985 when a terribly ill Hudson appeared on your show, finally bringing a national spotlight to the AIDS crisis.
• Bart Starr: A class act on and off the field.
• Bill Buckner: 22 years, 2,715 hits, and a botched groundball that lives in infamy.
