After seeing this sad news about Bob Shane, I thought a little about The Kingston Trio. My first reaction, other than them being one of the top folk groups, was that at John Denver and Michael Johnson ("Bluer Than Blue") were once part of the group. Then I realized that both of those singers were part of The Chad Mitchell Trio. The Kingston Trio had some very popular singles ("Tom Dooley", "Where Have All The Flowers Gone", etc.), but my favorite has always been "M.T.A". I guess I still wonder if Charlie ever got off that train or if he's riding forever 'neath the streets of Boston as the man who never returned.The trio chose the name Kingston because it wished to play calypso music. After doing Tom Dooley (which concerns a murder during Civil War times), however, their manager said, "Forget that. You're folk singers now."
Certainly a forerunner of the 60's folkies. Rip - Bob Shane
Saw this on the sports news and thought of all of you who are part of or were part of the NOL. Seems as if there was a little hair-pulling incident during the Bellevue-Norwalk girls' basketball game:
An incident over the weekend involving two Ohio high school girls basketball players was under investigation, a school district said.
Hope all is well and that the really bad weather is avoiding your area.
