Friend of Bang-A-Song, Ted Widmer, is the author of the recently published ‘Listening In: The Secret White House Recordings of John F. Kennedy‘ (Hyperion), which contains 2.5 hours of previously-unheard recordings from Kennedy’s Oval Office Dictaphone. You can read a review in the New York Times. Better yet, you can pick up a copy on Amazon, peruse the credits, and realize that the fact that ‘CDs were edited and sequenced by Tony Goddess at Bang-A-Song Studios in Gloucester, Massachusetts’ means that we were among the first humans to hear our 35th President make ‘Two Calls About Furniture Purchase’ on July 25th, 1963. Seriously, though…it was an honor to be a part of it, and many thanks to Ted for including us.
Bang-A-Song will be hosting Jennifer Winston of Beverly’s Speech Therapy Group at the studio for a vocal health class on Wednesday night starting at 7pm. Bang-A-Song is located at 72 Rogers Street/183 Main Street in Gloucester. The class, aimed at musicians and singers, will cover your voice, how it’s supposed to work, how to keep it healthy, and what to do if you’re worried you’re not taking care of it properly. Come on down and learn a little.
