Little Richard, Betty Wright and Jerry Stiller, RIP -- May11, 2020
This has been a terrible few days.  Little Richard died of cancer.  I have always liked Little Richard, and I had several of  his 45s.  I used to play "Tutti Frutti" at 78.  He was one of the founders of rock'n'roll.
Betty Wright also died of cancer.  I loved hearing "Clean Up Woman" on KFRC.  She was co-composer on "Where Is the Love".

Jerry Stiller had a great gift and he shared it.  I remember seeing Stiller and Meara on the Ed Sullivan Show.  Their routines often showed up on comedy shows on the radio.
