Hello and welcome! SONGSANDMEMORIES is a very comfortable place where you can interact with our website and all of our friends. We’ve built this site out of our love for music and movies, old and new, and the simple pleasure found in sharing our many memories. When and where possible, we offer links to listen to some "oldies" which you may have forgotten or maybe even never heard. We love them and hope you do, too. But we are also cognizant of those good songs and movies today, and share those with you as well. (The emphasis is on the word "good".) And because our focus is no longer on podcasts, like it once was, we now have the name change. Keep in mind, it is still us...only better!
We also discuss a variety of other performers, some well-known and others often overlooked through the passing years. Let our site be your personal time machine as we travel back to look at some of the best entertainers of the 20th Century, then travel forward to the best of today. Special emphasis is placed on "the forgotten ones." And we take special interest in those current performers (like Michael Buble' and Rod Stewart) who have not forgotten their debt to the past.
THANKS TO YOUTUBE
We have links to a collection of YouTube videos featuring some of our favorite performers. We will try to update these from time to time. Watch, Listen and enjoy! We have done the searches for you. You just get to click and enjoy. And our thanks to you tube for letting us share. If you ever notice any links no longer viable, please let us know so we can make updates and corrections. Updating is also part of what we are all about. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT from time to time, links are broken because videos are taken down. In those cases, go directly to you tube.com and search for them... 90 percent of the time you will find them there!
YAK! YAK! YAK!
On the Forum pages, you’ll find a variety of engaging topics. Share your thoughts on a current topic or start a topic of your own. Link to photographs, videos and audio files collected and posted by Forum members. Membership is easy and free! A simple email address suffices. From time to time, the forum disappears. We can not explain why. Just keep trying.
ON OTHER PAGES (SEE THE SIDEBAR MENU)
Our many other pages are devoted to all aspects of the music and movies we feature throughout. Many have historical significance; others are educational; most are pure enjoyment.
And don’t forget to click on the link at the bottom of the Home page to the Doris Day Animal Foundation to learn about this important cause near and dear. Consider making a donation to such a worthwhile cause. In addition, listen to the message sent to us by Doris Day when we honored her for her birthday on April 3, 2012 (on the JUST DORIS page). And see the bottom of any Doris Day page for a way you can help the animals every time you are on the internet.
