  • Arne, 10/12/2014: So pleased to discover your wonderful, useful website, and even more pleased, and honored to find that you've used one of my videos. But please, please - correct the date of birth for my listing under "F" performers - I don't know where you got your info, but I was born in 1949, NOT 1940!! - (1949 is bad enough!) - Thanks so much! - All the best to you and keep up the wonderful work in constructing this marvelous archive....
    Cafe Songbook response, 10/12/2014: No doubt the incorrect information came came from my aging brain which is about as old as you would be had the date originally included been correct. Anyway, thanks for the correction. The error has been fixed.
