I missed out on this song for over 40 years -- I literally had never heard it until the local oldies station aired it as part of a "guest DJ of the day" insert into the nationally syndicated Eddie Hubbard radio show. Oddly, that's not the first time Hubbard's guest DJ introduced me to a song I'd never heard, and instantly fell in love with -- the other is "A Dreamer's Holiday," also found on this site.
