Jeff Barry: Jeff Barry in the Rock Hall!

Congratulations to Jeff Barry and the late Ellie Greenwich for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:

Jeff Barry: Jeff Barry in the Rock Hall!

For Ellie Greenwich, this honor is a posthumous one. Ellie, whose songwriting partnership with then-husband Jeff produced some of the world's best-known songs, passed away on August 26, 2009. Jeff, along with several of his peers (please visit the above link), will be honored at the Rock Hall induction ceremony, to take place in New York City in March of 2010. Heartfelt congratulations to Jeff (whose official fan site is an Oldies Connection "sister site") - this honor is truly well deserved.

The Oldies Connection Blog is Back!

Hello, oldies fans,

After a rather long hiatus (which was mainly spent on launching various new websites and online communities as well as dealing with personal issues and a demanding day job), the Oldies Connection blog is back in action! The Oldies Connection website, which this blog supports, has never gone away; it is continually being updated with news and content. In addition, there is now an Oldies Connection Page on Facebook. The Facebook Page is mainly for posting links to videos and related sites as well as news on updates and additions to the main site. Please check it out and, if you're a Facebook member, feel free to become a fan of the page.

More articles and links coming soon on the Oldies Connection site. Stay tuned. And thanks for your support!
