A sure sign of the end of summer vacation was hearing "School bells ring and children sing it's back to Robert Hall again..."

There was the Cousin Brucie theme song, song by the Four Seasons on 77 WABC.

So turn that dial on the radio and turn up the volume. Its time to remember those GREAT Music Days that have long passed by.

So many GREAT Stories and Memories here of a different time. A time that we senior members often still miss.

I think the words to this song kind of expresses how many of us seniors feel these days. I believe the original singer of this song, also played in a movie starring Robert Redford.

So listen in as this song explains our thoughts in simple terms.
