by Alix Cohen - Feb 15, 2015

Patrons were given an extensive list of songs from which to select favorites and blue file cards on which to write one or more choices. These were deposited in a small shopping bag. After the first person pulled out a card, whoever requested the song would draw the next. Many dedicated a number to an accompanying loved one.
