Whatever she chooses, whether to stay or go, there is always a second, persistent question asking whether the decision made, has been the right one.

Written by Michael Carpenter I don’t remember a life without music. My first memories are of The Beatles breaking up, and their music has been constant. There was always music around my extended family’s house. And the radio was always on – classic AM radio taught me about songs and melody. My Dad loved the radio and I learned the value...
