Karen, I had to laugh when I saw that one of your favorite songs is "How Can I Keep From Singing?"  I went to a taping of the radio show "Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour" which is taped live in my hometown of Lexington, KY and goes out across the globe from there.  It's great getting to be there for the live performances, as well as responding to all the signs to applaud, cease applauding, etc., and seeing just what all goes into a radio program such as this.  If there is a glitch of some sort, it has to be redone in exactly the allotted seconds.  So here we were being an audience "echo" for this song, which, I believe, was played by the host, Michael Jonathan.  Our part was to sing (with volume, clarity, and enthusiasm): "How Can I Keep From Singing?", which we did quite well, I must say.  Over and over.  Something somewhere had a glitch, so we'd sing it again.  And again...still with volume, clarity, and enthusiasm.  It was finally OK and we could stop singing that line, but whenever this title comes up, I immediately think back to that night at the radio taping when I would have liked to have kept from singing--please!!!  giggle2
