For old times’ sake

When I was old enough to stay up to welcome in the New Year, I remember seeing the ball go down in Times Square on a black and white TV set and hearing Guy Lombardo‘s orchestra performing Auld Lang Syne.

That was a long time ago. Lombardo died in 1977. This performance by Aretha Franklin with Lombardo welcomed in 1975. We found out this month that the Queen of Soul is suffering from pancreatic cancer. Hopefully, she’ll be with us for many more New Years.
