Podcast: Sing Out! Some Great Singalongs
Episode #17-34 | airing 8-23-17

When I was a kid my family loved to sing. My Sister had a lovely soprano voice and my Dad sang all these out dated silly songs that at the time embarrassed me. Now I’d give anything to hear him sing again.

This week on the Sing Out! Radio Magazine, I’ve collected some of my favorite sing along songs. Singing always helps to raise the spirits and in these difficult times it just might help. So, sing along … on this week’s edition of The Sing Out! Radio Magazine!
