New Music Blog by Janey Loree...

I know...I need a new blog like I need another hole in my head! But, I finally found out how to transfer a tape to the computer!! This means that the songs, that my family recorded 11 years ago, can be turned into mp3 files!!!

Eleven years ago we lived in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Both my sons, Travis and Tony, were attending Christian Liberty Academy Satellite Schools (CLASS) which means they were home schooled through a Satellite Academy out of Arlington Heights, IL. To add to the already thorough curriculum, my dad taught Wood Shop, my mother taught Art and my Dad and I taught them Music.

As a result of the Music lessons, we started a family singing group. We called ourselves "The Fisher Family Singers" and spent many, many hours out in the music room practicing. The guys learned to play the guitar, my Dad bought an Upright Bass and I bought a Kurzweil Keyboard. We started singing at the mall during the Christmas season, played a gig for a congressional dinner and became regulars at the Terry Bison Ranch Senator's Restaurant.

Our repertoire consists of Gospel, Country Western, Songs from the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's and Christmas Songs. Getting back to the new blog...I have started working on "The Fisher Family Singers" blog. As I stated on the blog, it is my goal to bring to you the history of each of the songs we sing. In the mean time I will be embedding "My Rifle, Pony and Me" on our "Mustang 'n' Cowboys" blog, "Pretty Paper" on "PJ's Paper Doll Cut Outs", one of the Christmas songs on "Twiglet, the Little Christmas Tree", "Precious Memories" on "The Fisher Family Singers" and "String of Pearls" on this blog. I'll see you later...I have pictures to gather and memories to recall!!!

This is very neat. Good luck with making them all into mp3s. It's so nice that now you can have your family memories in a more modern format.
