MR. TIM ~











A good friend in Arkansas just wrote to say he'd driven his sons to school and the distance traveled was the length of listening to "A Stairway to Heaven". The original masterpiece. I asked if he was familiar with the Tiny Tim version. He wasn't. So we share it here with everyone.

Bob,

Tiny Tim's Stairway is a swinging bridge thanks to no small part to great band Brave Combo out of Denton. The leader Carl Finch is from Texarkana the town that spans the Arkansas-Texas state lines. Tiny Tim, a master and by reports a fine fellow. I have a doctor friend in Louisiana who became deeply devoted to Tim and his music and spent much time with him toward the end of his life visiting his hospital room and brightening his days. Thanks for the treat!

stay close,
mike

Thanks both!

Do we remember his wedding night to "Miss Vicki" almost 45 years ago? Sure we do. All 21 million, w/us, tuned in.

all's well, Bob
