A-Caryling with an Angel (Teen Angel)

Blogger friend and Taylor Hicks' long-time fan, Caryl, won the 'Talk to Taylor Hicks' contest featured on the Taylor Hicks' Headquarters Site. She did a brilliant job, kept it real and made it sound so easy.

I liked the directions of her questions, the intelligence she demonstrated; the conversation flowed like one old friend catching up with another. Nice job. (She also proved she can hold a secret! ha.) I'm probably one of the last to know about this, but just in case someone missed it, here's a link to
Caryl Gets Her Interview!

"Hello My Old Friend" ELO

This tune recorded in 1983 for inclusion on the album Secret Messages, (shout out to you Caryl!) which was originally intended as a double album. The song saw eventual release in 1990 on the USA-only box set Afterglow.


  1. Thanks for that email 'heads up' caryl, just sorry I was out and did not get to read my msgs sooner. Congrats gal!

  2. Thanks, sunny. I appreciate your comments in this blog entry. I'm glad I made it look easy. I'm a seriously shy person, so I don't know who that girl was on the phone with Taylor! I'm glad she showed up instead of my usual socially-inept personality. LOL! When I hung up the phone, I said out loud, "Oh. My. God."

  3. Hahaha! I did not have much time this morning so kept it short (the entry). Socially-inept go I sometimes, too. I understand. ha.

  4. Hope Taylor doesn't mind that I shared our convo, but I thought it would be good for all of us to hear some of the things he said. (And, of course, I realize he didn't share any secrets.)
