Hello Obie, 


Thank you for sharing with us, I didn't know you love classical music. One of my passions is music and I really believe that music is the connection of the heart to the soul. All my Best!



Lorenzo.

Thanks for sharing Obie.  If I lived in Milwaukee I would bring my copy for you to sign.  I have three of Obie's books and they are all a wonderful read.

How kind of you, Jim, thank you. If you like a sweet and sentimental romantic yarn, Will's Music is for you. I'm the biggest romantic fool you'll ever meet and that's why the novel was a joy to write.

Obie, thank you. Radio is woven into part of who I am today. It's been a constant in my life regardless of who or what has been tuned in. Congratulations on the book signing! It must be a great feeling. Enjoy!

Gentlemen,
Thank you for the kind words. I always enjoy appearing before a crowd. In my previous life I must have been an actor.

"Will's Music" is a good read. We're ready to celebrate our 48th anniversary, and I guess I'm still the romantic, and "Will's Music" brought back many of my early memories of courting my wife. I also grew up prior to TV, and radio played an important part in my life, and the book gave a fascinating look at the radio business. Now if Obie would only write a book about straight razor shaving..."The Romance of the Hone?" Thanks, Obie, for a very enjoyable book.

Obie,

As always, you're a class-act. I'm all over the map with music, but when it comes to classical music, my favorite by a large margin, is Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.

Yes, yes, Sir Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. I used to play that ensemble quite a bit on my radio show. The ensemble has recorded a vast collection of baroque music: Vivaldi, Handle, Bach, Torelli, Tartini and the rest of the good guys. This brings back memories from my old radio days.
