The Music of Count Basie and The Voice of 20th Century
Let us usher in October with the music of Count Basie and Frank Sinatra for this weekend entertainment. Both the bandleader and the singer need no introduction. All we have to do is to sit back and enjoy their presentation.
On October 21, 2016, my Alma Mata, The Penang Free School will celebrate its 200th Anniversary. I am sorry I will not be there but some of my classmates will be there. Thank you, PFS, MU, and GWU (and my intellectual and academic mentor Dr. Philip D. Grub) for nurturing me. –Din Merican, PFS Class of 1959, UM Class of 1963 and The George Washington University Class of 1970.
We hope you have a good time. Whatever you plan to do, please pursue it in moderation. With best wishes from Dr. Kamsiah (now in Bangkok, Thailand) and Din Merican.
