    The first song I remember wanting a 45 rpm of was "Puff the Magic Dragon".


    Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary dead at 72

    DANBURY, Conn. – Mary Travers, one-third of the hugely popular 1960s folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary, has died.

    The band's publicist, Heather Lylis, says Travers died at Danbury Hospital in Connecticut on Wednesday. She was 72 and had battled leukemia for several years.

    Travers joined forces with Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey in the early 1960s.

    I was really saddenned to hear this. The last two times Peter Paul and Mary were scheduled to appear in my area, they had to reschedule. I regret not being able to seel them in concert.
