A Penny For Your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker

THE FUN IN COUNTRY

I grew up with and around music. I have been making music on the piano/keyboard for many years as I grew up in church, listening to the Grand Ole Opry and during the 1950-60s era.

When I was a teenager I could tell you the name of every singer, what records they had out and what songs were on the top 10.

There was a store in Van Wert called Pollock’s. It was a TV and furniture store, but Mr. Pollock had record players and records for sale.
