 Happy Friday! Congratulations for making it through a very cold week!!  

Perhaps you remember K-tel, the company that was big in the 60’s and 70’s compiling hits and selling albums with titles like “Fantastic Hits,” “Power Hits,” and “Out of Sight Hits.”  We may not have heard much from these folks for a while, but rumor has it that they are getting ready to release a new album just for Baby Boomers.  They are taking some of our old favorites, updating them and putting them on a new album called “Baby Boomers Turn Gray: Re-heated Oldies.”
