Playing tracks by
Roy Orbison, Don McLean, Al Green, Del Shannon, Traveling Wilburys and more.
This week only 2 topics. The first makes the music lover in me a little sad while the second makes the child in me happy again
On December 6, 1988 the man with the most beautiful voice in the pop music, Roy Orbison passed away. The 52-year-old singer died of a heart attack after a dinner with his mother in Tennessee.
Leaving us numerous musical treasures it might for music lovers be more than coincidence that Roy passed away 1646, or was it 1636 year, after one Nicholas of Myra died. The Nic was declares Holy and since the 13th century we celebrate his name day on 6 December. Already in 1360 the children of Dordrecht had a free day from school and they were given extra nickels to pamper themselves.
