Happy birthday, Irving

Here’s a song in honor of the birthday of Irving Berlin (1888-1989), and if you recognize all or even most of the performers, that can mean only one thing: you’re at least as old as I am.

    Okay, okay – so I’m old. Sue me.
    I swear, EVERYthing I see nowadays reminds me that I’ve made many, many trips around the sun…

    While listening I reflexively stood up and saluted! I do recognize every single one… How did I get so old as to know them?

    I recognize more than half. But than again, I love movies and things from before my time. I’ve grown up with the great older entertainment. I noticed some people got more time than others to sing😏😂
