This morning I watched Richard Carpenter on Television. He is in Tokyo and ready to make a comeback.
In the newspaper he says "Music is a different world from when Karen and I were signed by Herb Alpert in 1969,"
I had no idea that Herb Alpert was related to Carpenters.
It reminds me of my high school days. When I was in high school I played a trumpet in Brass Band and Herb Alpert was my favorite artist.
I used to enjoy Fandango or Route101.
And besides I had no idea that he (Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass) performed "Bittersweet Samba" the theme song of 'All night Nippon'.
