    Program helps foster, adoptive, kids adapt through music
    "....What saved her, Barrier said, was the music of the Carpenters
    and other popular performers of the day, music emanating from the transistor radio she took from one place to the next."
    "Your parents kept changing, your siblings kept changing, your pets, your churches, your schools, everything changed every couple of months," Barrier said.
    "But I had this little red radio and that little red radio delivered the music.
    And that became my constant companion."

    Wishing you a very Happy 71 Richard! And with this new age, I'll be listening to the recordings from '71 all day long. Heck, I'll even walk past the Hollywood Palladium again (Grammy Awards 1971) and the former A&M studio not too far away from here :)

    Also happy anniversary, with the appearance on Herb Alpert's new Christmas album, this marks 55 years of being on records!! :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

    Have a great one!!
