Yup. Friday.

From way, way, way back . . .


Friday night oldie

Fats Domino – the piano loved him. So did the ALL-white crowd.

Katrina bonus oldie

While over at youtube reminiscing this morning, I found this. The man loved his city.

Friday oldie

This one was from the 50’s but was still getting a lot of play in 1960 and ’61. It has stayed with me because my then-best friend lived on a Blueberry Hill in Connecticut. And we listened to this over and over and over.

Fats Domino is just the right oldie  on this fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. I remember how worried everyone was that week, when he couldn’t be located. And when he did emerge from his house into a boat, it was an event. A welcome one.
