SAINT PATRICK’S DAY in the Land of the Round Haircut. And not to forget SAINT URHO, Patron Saint of Finland. The wearing of the Green and the Wearing of the Purple. A pair of Saint Patrick’s Day Birthdays-in-Green: NATKINGCOLE and JOHN SEBASTIAN, along with a Gospel styled Birthday-in-Gold for SISTER ROSETTA THARPE. Lots more Good News in Song/Gospel Sounds for this sixth Monday in Lent/Holy Week. EASTER is the EARLIEST possible date this year—the last time EASTER came this early was in 1913! And SPRING arrives in the North Country(wishful thinking department) on Saturday———

A special edition of BOPSTREET dedicated to the memory of Ronnie Italiano, better known—in vocal group harmony circles—as Ronnie ‘I’, founder and president of UGHA-United in Group Harmony Association—the oldest, and for over twenty years the ONLY, non profit organization devoted to the preservation, exposure and education of pioneering Vocal Group Harmony Sounds. One man with a vision of a more perfect world toiling in the vineyard of sound since 1976—a true individual was our Ronnie. He will be missed and NEVER forgotten. Only three other individuals in the course of the program’s nearly twenty years on the air have had an entire show devoted to his or her memory: Sinatra, Peggy Lee, and Slim Gaillard.
