Singer Tom Jones turns 71 today.

I once emceed a show starring Tom down at the old Olympia Stadium.  As I recall the opening act was Gladys Knight.  After her performance, I had to go on stage and announce that there would be a 20 minute intermission before Tom Jones came on.   You haven’t lived until you’ve had 16,000 screaming women booing and throwing things at you.  And trust me, they weren’t women’s panties!  They were saving those for Tom!

Have a great day and I’ll see you back here Wednesday!
