I do think that the term "Oldies But Goodies"  to describe R&B music to me is
so much outdated. The term " Classic Soul & R&B" should be labeled, because as
the music becomes older, it just gets better with time. It reminds me of
vintage wine that's been locked in a cellar for 10 years or more. The more locked, the
more it sparkles the taste.

What makes me happy is my music and whatever of my music and myself, I can
give to people, to educate them and help them to forget whatever troubles may
Darlene Love
haunt them. To have fun and satisfy the listeners, makes my life very rewarding.
