Recently a sweet young friend tuned me on to Retro 1260 AM. Pre-1970’s, classics, oldies, swing, old adult standards, easy listening, Doo-Wop, etc.
However, like my food, I only like one kind of music – Good. This fits into that category. Unfortunately, here in Pasadena the old recordings mixed with what must be a retro-transmitter on AM don’t always make for an audiophiles reception of their signal. Nevertheless, this can’t disguise the fact why many of these old tunes became great.
Yet, the main reason for posting this is not this new station. It’s an old song this station gave birth to my ears for the first time: an old Cole Porter standard sung by Frank Sinatra titled, I Love Paris.
I share this with those who also haven’t heard it before, my French friends tuning in, or those who just like French macarons (or french fries!). And, of course, for those who have heard this…when these old songs were new.
Below is another version by singer Sergio Vellatti.
Q: What you think? Which version do you prefer?
At the least, I hope this song brings a slice of peace & harmony to you & your neighborhood today.
