  1. I love Nat King Cole and it was different to hear this Unchained Melody but I prefer the one by the Righteous Brothers. Great list I listened to on Tues.


    1. I can’t remember my folks playing the radio much, to be honest. Mom played it a lot after Dad died, but that was mostly Ray Coniff, Percy Faith, Mantovani etc.
