This past Christmas, my son gave me the Roku system.  With this, I have access to all sorts of TV, movies, etc.

Tonight, I took a step back in time - to December 31, 1955 and Your Hit Parade.  At the risk of sounding like an old lady, the songs back then were wonderful.  There was Autumn Leaves, Love & Marriage, Moments to Remember, Memories are Made of This, Sixteen Tons all sung by Dorothy Collins, Snooky Lanson, Gizele MacKenzie.  There was one song, He, which I had forgotten about until Dorothy Collins started to sing.  It brought me back to a time when it was possible to have a popular song about God.  How far we've come from then.

They even had a commercial for Lucky Strike cigarettes.

Now for a little Perry Como.
