      The Song you are seeking was done by Mrs. Miller. She also did a version of the ‘Toys’ Lover’s Concerto.

    I’m trying to find a speech that would come on the radio when I was a little girl. I only remember parts of it. It was played every Sunday morning. It was spoken by a woman. She was talking about GOD Some of the words at the end ended “HE WALKS LIKE A MIGHTY GOD, NOW TELL ME DO YOU LOVE EVERYBODY.” I don’t really know if that was the exact wording but close to it. Please help me out. Thanks in advance.

    Looking For a 1972 version of New York Is Closed Tonight by Canadian Artist Barry Greenfield. He recorded another version of it in 1973. But I want the 72 version.
    Can you help?

    I used to listen to Honey Radio WHND in the 1970’s and 1980’s. I heard them play a slow girl group song that had the following lyrics: “It’s like a dream” “I close my eyes.” That is all I remember. It was a slow ballad and the singers sounded white. It was such a beautiful song, and I didn’t get the chance to record it on tape back then. I have no idea who the artist was and I know a lot about the artists back then, and have a huge collection. Maybe the song was no real well known, because I’ve never heard it again, and I can’t find it on You Tube.

    in the early 1970’s, heard a song about 10x over a couple of years. Pop. sounded closest to Franki Valli ‘Lets hang on, with the same wonderful harmonies, but had the words ‘ i loved a girl, but she’s only a friend of mine’ i have looked to find this for over 30 years without luck, and am desperate!!!!! it has become a ‘bucket list’ item to find this!!!!! PLEASE, anybody who knows, help me!!!!!
