Any Pat Boone Fans Out There?


How embarrassing, I organized a campaign to get my friend Pat Boone into the Rock n'Roll Hall of Fame five weeks ago by putting up the website here. Thus far, in more than 1,700 "backers," only two from Idaho have logged in. I'm actually the first person to sign in and one other from the state has also. I have repeated made you aware of this campaign but not a word. What's wrong, are you too young to remember the contributions Pat Boone made at the very start of Rock n' Roll? Come on ... You sign in ... Or get some of your blog readers to do so ... Each person who visits the website gets to hear a Pat Boone million seller ... He's had 21 such hits and is represented more than 60 times on the best selling charts over the years. Isn't it time to appreciate a good role model?
