    i reckon it was sinatra who established the song worldwide as we don’t have any other frame of reference, i’ve never seen that dinero/scorcese film & i thought i’d seen all of them? obviously it was liza’s appearance that put me off, as a singer myself i reckon she never held a candle to her mother’s voice & i’m a friend of dorothy’s.

    Made me miss my grandpas… the wisdom in the way he was answering. the patience and the softness but strong words. Protect this man.

    New York is so expensive it’s lost much of it’s character except for yuppies and some lingering seniors found at museums.

    John Kander!!!!!! I listened to Cabaret when i was a kid and never thought after all these years that i’d actually see him on TV 53 years later. What a composer!!! He’s given us so many great tunes!! Thank you, John!!!!

    I would disagree with Kander on only one point: Enemies live here too but, like New York, we agree to disagree and just get on with it
