Andy Williams Remembered


  Next year I'll hit the big 60 age landmark. You can't get to be that old without knowing the name of Andy Williams. He was a talented easy listening singer who reached his peak of popularity in the 1960s and 1970s. He passed away earlier this week. It's fitting to pause and listen to some of his greatest hits.

A Time For Us

 

My favorite performance was from his variety show. It demonstrated his great sense of humor. He teamed with Ray Stevens and Danny Thomas to give us a hilarious rendition of Ray Stevens' hit "Along Came Jones."

 Rest in Peace, Andy.
