Remember The Ronettes!




The Ronettes were my favorites of the "girl groups" in pop music.

They were Veronica (Ronnie) Bennett, her sister Estelle, and cousin Nedra Talley.

The girls grew up in New York and had huge hits, such as "Be my baby".  They had great harmonies, unusual hair and very good looks!

So let's remember The Ronettes with "Be my baby" and "Walkin' in the rain".

We remember Paul Weyrich (1942-2008)





--------
We remember Paul Weyrich, co-founder of the Heritage Foundation, founder of the Free Congress Foundation and other organizations.  

Paul was born on this day in 1942.  He passed away in 2008.

Weyrich was an important voice back in the late 1970's. He was a critical player in the Republican comeback of 1980.

We also remember Paul for starting The Heritage Foundation.

It started many years ago in October 1962. 

John, Paul, George & newcomer Ringo released their first single in the UK.  It made it to the Top 20 and opened the way for bigger songs later. 

In 1963, The Beatles made it to #1 with "Please please me" & "She loves you".  In early 1964, they were performing on The Ed Sullivan Show in New York and Beatlemania was going strong in the US.

In the US, these two songs were included in an LP "The Early Beatles".   In the UK, both songs were in the first LP.

You can hear them here:    "Love me do" & "P.S. I love you".  This is a great book about all of their songs:
