The Morning Lounge with Jill and Rich/A Change is A-Comin'

Posted on September 20, 2014 with 1 comment

Is it my imagination, or is there a subtle drop in humidity and temperature in the early mornings? Not so much? Well schools are back in session, and I see pumpkin spice everything, everywhere, so it must be Fall in South Florida. It makes me want to cook thick stews, buy a pair of totally unnecessary boots, and chat about Halloween costume ideas.

 

Another reason I’m feeling that change is in the air is the Legends Radio season kick-off concert/celebration held on Sept. 9th at The Maltz Jupiter Theater. I could write pages about the genius of Ann Hampton Callaway’s world-class performance that night. Suffice it to say that she gave everything in her loving tribute to Sarah Vaughan, demonstrating that the Great American Songbook is alive and well and in the most brilliant hands. The Our Love is Here To Stay sing-a-long Ann led when making her entrance at the after-party was the evening’s icing on the cake.

 

“Life-changing” and “magical” were the words that kept popping up while Rich and I mingled with some of the more than 500 Legends’ listeners in attendance, and not just in reference to the concert.  We heard variations on the sentiment that Legends Radio has brought folks a sense of community and belonging in Palm Beach County that they’d never fully felt before. We heard personal stories of how the music not only brings back cherished memories but helps them feel more happy, positive and hopeful. 

 

Now that is change I’m not imagining, and as Legends 100.3 begins month number seven on the air, I can’t help but feel that something very special, magical is occurring in my home town, and I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of it.

Yes the change that came on the airwaves 7 months has brought a community together. Music has a way of doing that especially when the music is as wonderful as the Great American Song Book. A big thank you for Dick Robinson and his vision. The icing on the cake is Jill and Rich and the morning lounge. You can feel their love of life, music and people on the air every day. I am so proud to have them as friends and to be part of something so positive.
Love, Clare Bear.....
