Anonymous asked, "I listen to the oldies station at my retail job. Yesterday a customer came in and told me that she was best friends with the woman who wrote "Be My Baby" and "Leader of the Pack" (among others), all written when she was 15-20 yrs-old, but that the friend had died 4 years ago. She said they'd agreed that the first one to pass would try to contact the other and there had been several signs from her friend (a single rose-petal in her purse, the friend's fav knick-nack moved across the room, etc)."

Your customer knew and was friends with Ellie Greenwich? That’s amazing, what a small world! Thank you for sharing.
