A lifetime love affair

Diana Ross, from the Author’s Collection.

Do you remember the first 45rpm/single record you ever bought? Mine was “Bang, Bang” by Cher in 1966. I wouldn’t say I liked it that much, but I was being rushed at the TG&Y to pick something out. It was the number two song that week. Number one was “The Ballad of the Green Berets, " which was just too “straight” for me, even at the age of nine.
