Pablo Beltran Ruiz R.I.P.

The Sociedade de Autores y Compositors de Mexico, the Spanish affiliate to ASCAP, is reporting the passing of their member, bandleader and composer Pablo Beltran Ruiz, at age 93. Pablo Beltran Ruiz was little known outside of his native country. The same could have been said of his work, had it not been for a piece of music he composed 55 years ago. Originally written as a cha cha, "Quien Sera" was recorded by Pablo Beltran Ruiz and his orchestra in 1953.

Celebrate Caturday with "C'mon Live A Little!"

How was everyone's July? Are you glad to put it behind you, or do you look back at last month with wistful nostalgia? I know they say the "dog days" of summer are officially unleashed in August, but I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I suppose it depends on whether you a "dog person" or not.

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police say they have confiscated a gun belonging to Jerry Lewis that was found in the 82-year-old entertainer's carryon bag as he prepared to fly to Detroit from Las Vegas.

Les Brown & The Super Sounds of Renown - “New Horizons”

Used to be, when a popular musical group fell from favor, they’d “reinvent” themselves, ditching their perishable old shtick in favor of whatever “sound” was currently in vogue. They’d take this route as long as they could before finally being put to pasture on the oldies circuit. Albums from this period would often have “today!” or “now!” in the title (eg. “Junior Samples NOW!”).
