Jenni, I stumbled onto this as I was looking for the clip of TOP OF THE WORLD from the blimp. I have a precious memory of playing the LONG, LONG, TRAIL for my demented, elderly grandmother. I was just out of high school, and for several years I religiously taped LWS on Saturday evening with my cassette recorder in front of the TV, BEFORE going out on any social activity. I played it for my grandma when I would visit. On the day I played this LWS show my grandma joined in on the LONG, LONG. TRAIL. That was 45 years ago. It warms my heart today!
Yes, good memories. What a wonderful story, Debbie! That was a sweet service you did for your grandmother. I’m sure she loved you so much for that!
