Barbra Streisand is 75

Spotify Honors Barbra Streisand with Play List I started following this playlist at 65 followers.  I have always had a lot of joy listening to Barbra sing.  One of my first compact discs was the Broadway Album.

I was a courier in Los Angeles a long time ago. I delivered IBM computer parts and Movie and Television industry items. I had a deliver to Barbra's house in Bel Aire one day, but she of course did not answer the door. Someone else signed for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts parcel that was addressed to her.
