Your Final 2013 Weekend Entertainment

Friends,

Din and Kam2This is the final weekend for 2013. We think it is appropriate to close our 2013 weekend entertainment session by bringing back some great ladies of song of a bygone era. Let us start with Joni James, followed by Doris Day. And then we bring on Rosemary Clooney, Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington. You will probably agree with us these personalities, each in her inimitable style, have left an indelible mark on modern popular music and jazz.

Please have  a good New Year. Despite the tough times ahead, we all have the strength of character to withstand the pressures that can come with the rising cost of living.–Dr. Kamsiah and Din Merican
