Happy Birthday, Willi!

Today we remember Willi Wagener, who passed on in 1986.

My Stepdad would have been 87 this day, and he loved Mario Lanza’s songs.  Here’s to you, Willi.

He loved fishing, photography, travelling and history, both ancient and more recent.

This picture was taken in the Buergerpark in Bremen, Germany, in 1975 or thereabouts. Used to go there of a Sunday to play put-put golf, visit the animals in the small zoo and go row-boating.

    1. Yes, his voice is something else, isn’t it? I think I prefer tenors, too, and then again, to mind come basses, and even counter tenors who are striking… Regardless, I’m glad you enjoyed listening. ☺
