Remembering Lesley Gore

The World lost another great singer this week. Lesley Gore lost her battle with cancer.  Ever since my young days I have always loved her records.  Many remember 'It's My Party' which was her first hit.  Her songs got better with each release.  'The Look Of Love' is one of my faves.  Just a couple of weeks ago I was t.v. channel flipping and I came across the 1967 episode of Batman in which Lesley Gore played one of Catwoman's helpers and sang 'California Nights'.  What a great moment from the '60s!  I have always felt that Ms. Gore stole the show in the concert movie The T.A.M.I. Show. from 1964.  Even though she was just a teen, her stage presence was simply amazing.   You can hear some of Lesley Gore's finest hits during this Saturday nights Those Were The Days on WRCO FM 100.9.  Request a song from the fifties through the eighties this weekend.  I will be hosting the weekly trivia game as well.  Let's have some fun this Saturday night with Those Were The Days.
