Doctor Dan & the Space Cowboys!

Mighty congratulations are in order for Drs. Dan and Roni Crocker of Crocker Farm Winery in Franklin, Kentucky.

Songwriter Paul Francis Webster was born today in 1907. Mr. Webster gave us “The Shadow of Your Smile”, “I Got It Bad and That Ain’t Good”, the lyrics to one of my favorite Hoagy Carmichael tunes; “Baltimore Oriole”, and the theme song for television’s Maverick.

Cheers!
