Tribute to my dad Fredric J Cheon 12-17-11

The anniversary of my father's death always sneaks up on me, this year I put off recording his tribute show until the actual day he died, December 17th. But I know he was here next to me just as he was the first time I ever watched a Shirley Temple movie or played a game of pinochle while The Beatles "Rubber Soul" was our soundtrack. I hope you get an idea of how much this man shaped my life and how much I miss him more than ever.

Tribute to my dad Fredric J Cheon 12-17-10

Last night I recorded my annual tribute to my dad who passed away three years ago today, December 17th. Every year I have to exclude so many great songs, which only means they'll make next years mix. Here's to hoping he hears this mix or has all his records with him wherever he may be now.

Please share it with anyone you think might like the classic sounds of yesterday...
