Cleo Laine Music Break

 If you are unfamiliar with the glorious jazz voice of Britain's Cleo Laine, treat your ears for a few minutes. I first discovered her artistry during my first professional broadcast job when I was a recent college graduate. I read the weekday morning news on a popular FM rock radio station in Milwaukee. Publicists sent all sorts of record albums to the program director to consider for airplay. Albums that wouldn't be played were placed in a box for staffers to sift through and take home. I saw an album by Cleo Laine. I took it home, played it and I was hooked. This was the late 70s. In the mid 80s, I had the privilege and joy to interview her on New York TV. I was new at WPIX TV and she was a cast member in the Broadway musical, THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD.


Here's Cleo Laine swinging the title tune from another Broadway musical, "On a Clear Day You Can See Forever."

Here's one of the cuts I heard on the Cleo Laine album I took home from work at that FM rock radio station in Milwaukee. From PORGY AND BESS, here's "I Loves You, Porgy."


I hope you enjoyed the  artistry -- and range -- of singer/actress Cleo Laine.

  3. The doctors said Herpes virus do not have medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isn’t a special virus – your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body,But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without damaging any of your cells,natural herbs kills the virus totally not just reducing the out break.
