SAINT PATRICK’S DAY in the Land of the Round Haircut. And not to forget SAINT URHO, Patron Saint of Finland. The wearing of the Green and the Wearing of the Purple. A pair of Saint Patrick’s Day Birthdays-in-Green: NATKINGCOLE and JOHN SEBASTIAN, along with a Gospel styled Birthday-in-Gold for SISTER ROSETTA THARPE. Lots more Good News in Song/Gospel Sounds for this sixth Monday in Lent/Holy Week. EASTER is the EARLIEST possible date this year—the last time EASTER came this early was in 1913! And SPRING arrives in the North Country(wishful thinking department) on Saturday———
