A favorite artist and my connection

 I was no older than thirteen when my cousins from Southern California
came to visit. One of them accidentally broke my $1.99 album of "Fool
on the Hill" that I played on my phonograph. My Cousin Jesse, their father
insisted on buying me a new album so, he bought the real version by
Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66'. There was something special about that
album. I went on to memorize parts of  "Upa Neguinho" and other songs. And
that is how Sergio Mendes and Brasil 66' was selected for my Jango station.

I noticed I have some fans in Brazil, based on my Radio Airplay fan list so,  I want there
to be music representing many cultures since "music appreciation" is
something I enjoy as a lifestyle that started early.
