  1. Ogie is one of the nation's finest songwriters and deserves the kudos he receives. My college days were in the heyday of OPM, when he, Martin & Gary, etc had songs which gave foreign songs & crooners a run for their money. Its would be great indeed to bring those glory days back if only current songwriters & singers alike concentrated on making actual & proper musical art and cease force feeding the public with forgettable commercial crap.
