Phil Ranallo, Glen Campbell, Sinatra.

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.
