Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
I remember sitting by our Magnavox radio and singing along with Gogi to this when I was a little girl. Was I really only nine years old??
BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISEA1IK7AEE - The Wayward Wind - Gogi Grant, 1956
In 1956 versions were recorded by Gogi Grant, Tex Ritter, and Jimmy Young, of which Grant's was the biggest seller in the United States and Ritter's in the United Kingdom. The song reached #1 on the Cash Box chart, which combined all recorded versions, but must have got most of that popularity from the Gogi Grant version, which reached #1 on the Billboard chart on its own. The song is one of only two songs that were major hits for Grant, the other being "Suddenly There's a Valley".

Thanks so much, Susan!
