Thanks to those who let me know through FB and Twitter that you enjoy my work are are sharing these posts.

I firmly believe in the power of people and the strength of that power to help make my story telling dream come true.

Todays post is part two of the Ladies First Big Band story that I shared yesterday.  In this video, it is my honor to introduce you to  a wonderfully talented lady by the name of Fran Schrett.

I interviewed Fran in the fall  of 2009 and telling her story was an absolute delight.  Sadly, this spirited lady passed just weeks ago.  So today, I dedicate this story to the memory of Fran Schrett—one very special lady who followed her musical dream—from Buffalo, around the world and home again.

Thank you Fran for inspiring me to follow my passion, just as you did all of your life.
