Every summer, the day after Labor Day, the town of Ocean Grove, as we have known it all summer long,  suddenly disappears, and another version takes its place. It’s magic like the story of Brigadoon.

Here are Shirley Jones  and Jack Cassidy with  “The Heather on the Hill.”   –Paul Goldfinger, Editor  @Blogfinger

A FOGGY DAY.   Performed by Gregory Hines.     George and Ira Gershwin wrote this song for a 1937 movie called “A Damsel in Distress.”  Fred Astaire performed “Foggy Day”  in that film.

We have a winner in our “name that singer” contest. It is Carl Swenson of OG who nailed it.

Gregory Hines was a  brilliant performer who, early in his career, sang and danced with his brother Maurice Hines and his Dad.  The act was called “Hines, Hines and Dad.”  Eileen and I saw them live in New York, and they they were wonderful.    Unknown-3

Gregory Hines was a great star of movies, TV,  and Broadway. He won a Tony and an Emmy.  He died at age 57 of cancer. —PG
