My father, Phil Ranallo, wrote his Sports column with the stereo playing. I served as his personal DJ for many years, stacking records on his Magnavox tube stereo console. He loved Glen Campbell and his favorite song was “By the Time I Get to Phoenix.”. Glen was also part of an elite group of studio musicians known as The Wrecking Crew. My oldest daughter moved to Phoenix about 10 years ago. Whenever I hear Glen Campbell’s voice I remember the sound of my fathers Olivetti Underwood typewriter.
Rest in Peace Glen Campbell.
