|In the 50's, I was a young radio dj
and always enjoyed playing the Joni James hits - but the big kick came when Joni stopped
by to promote one of her songs and gave me a wonderful interview - still have the photo of
the two of us. Thanks Joni - see you at the NY concert.
I've been waiting a long time for Joni
to go on tour. Bought 4 tix for me and siblings for 9/19 Carnegie concert. I can't wait!
Used to listen and write down the words to all her songs in mid to late 50's. Love you,
Joe, nice to get your e-mail too. I didn't know
anyone would respond as I was just adding to the comment box and felt like sharing my
thoughts of Joni James,way back when. I got a real kick out of engagement congratulations
since that was 45 years ago when I was 17!!!!(and I did not marry THAT person but WILL be
married 40 years next month to my husband. My husband is not into concerts so a girlfriend
and I purchased good, up-front seats for this show. She also loved Joni James and like me,
is looking forward to seeing this comeback. I still have a couple of her 45 rpm records,
believe it or not. Just can't seem to get myself to throw out any of my old 45s.
Question-- how old is Joni? I will be 62 this month and I assume she is about the
same????If you know, drop me a line, okay? It sounds like you do not live in NY since you
asked about location of St. John's University - (it's in Fresh Meadows, Queens.......Well,
again, I was surprised to get a response but it was nice, and, has been fun writing back.
Talk to you soon........Barbara
Thanks for your nice reply. I will now
check the web site regularly for news on Joni. Santiago Rodriguez
I saw her perform at The Riviera in
Port Washington, LI when she was newly engaged and announced it from the stage. Her family
was there and I remember stopping by her table to congratulate her and showing her my
engagement ring, me being also newly engaged. I am looking forward to seeing her on sept.
19 at Carnegie Hall.
Joooniiii Jammmes, Have you Heard, I'm
still in love with you . How important can it be. You are and will always be the most
important female artist.
