The passing of Bobby Rydell on the surface was but a small ripple on the deep well of the news cycle, but there’s no way it wouldn’t cast a pall over this episode of FTB. At 4 years old I was struck by the power of music through him. Hey, it takes a village you know. Regardless of the spark that causes Music to become a central part of your life, I’m happy it hit me so young.
