In Florida the wonders of nature are well preserved for the enjoyment of all. The affluent Floridians in Palm Beach have preserved the art of philanthropy and traditional American values. Folks seem to also preserve their well being with lots of excercise, sports and healthy eating. Yes, wrinkles are sometimes addressed and the sunny state has an unlimited amount of health care professionals to help your mind and body keep in shape. Palm Beach also seems to be ground zero for the preservation of the Great American Songbook because it is home to Dick Robinson’s Society For The Preservation Of The Great American Songbook, one of the leading organizations in the world dedicated to preserving what I like to call “our music”. It’s the songs of the great American composers and lyricists of the past decades that will live on forever. Thanks to Dick Robinson and many others efforts, it is always being heard over the airways. Dick’s Legends Radio Station welcomed one of the leading champions of the Great American Songbook, Ann Hampton Callaway last night at a concert at Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens. There were lots of legends present besides Mr. Robinson. Connie Francis and Steve Tyrell were in the audience and Dick Capri of legendary Catskills on Broadway fame looked out into the crowd and said, “I don’t see any senior citizens here” and then kept them “laughing in the aisles”.
