I have to note the passing of Eartha Kitt. We were still in high school when she first became hot with her record "Santa Baby" in 1953, and "C’est Si Bon" in 1954. From then on, we always called Dick Kitts "Eartha" just because of the similarity of last names. Even today, that’s his name I first think of.
