BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Autumn In New York” Results

To refresh your memory, my October 15 battle pitted Japanese vocalist Kimiko Itoh against Jo Stafford on the timeless classic, “Autumn In New York.”

When the votes started rolling in on this battle, I thought I had made another error in judgment and that Jo Stafford would slaughter Kimiko Itoh, then Kimiko started getting votes, and I felt a little more at ease, and when it ended, it turned out to be pretty close. The results:

Kimiko Itoh: 4

Jo Stafford: 6

Congratulations to Jo Stafford and a pat on the back to Kimiko Itoh, who did very well in this one.

The next battle is scheduled (and has been for a couple of weeks; I’ve been organized!) for next Thursday, November 1. See you then!
