Mitch Miller passed away in New York on Saturday at the age of 99. He was a cutting edge record producer for his time, brought music, entertainment and a bit of home to soldiers and three generations of Americans (camp now, but felt great to my parents and grandparents). He broke color lines and made other major steps forward in the industry, however he also opposed "rock and roll" and blocked it from Columbia records for years. He will most be remembered for "Sing Along" with Mitch...both with live orchestras and his records, radio show and television series.
