I've never been the type of person to 'pine away' for my youth.
For the most part, I'm happy where I am in my 40's. Yes, winning the lottery would make me happier, but until then, I'm good.
But there are days like today, when I hear that someone has died, and when that someone has contributed in some way to my early years, I go back and remember for a bit.
Such is the case today, with Ron Hynes.
I didn't know Ron, and he certainly didn't know me, but he absolutely made an impact on my early adult life.
That song was Sonny's Dream, and the singer was Ron Hynes.
I'd go up to the DJ booth and ask, 'Play Sonny's Dream!'
Thank you for giving this girl some wonderful memories, through your music.

P.S. If you want to hear the radio version, Google it. I'm all about the live music today!
