    Brenda,

    I grew up listening to the music you mentioned above, including all of the great quartets of the late 50′s thru the 70′s, Check out my playlist on the music player on my page here at PAN, If you can think of some songs and groups from way back then let me know, if available I will add them. Do you have any recordings of your Dad, I would love to hear it/ them.

    Also, there is a new Documentary Movie that was just released that you may find of interest titled “Rejoice and Shout” http://www.movieguide.org/reviews/movie/rejoice-and-shout.html

    for reviews and trailers
