Subject: Obit: Mitch Miller, bandleader, music exec
I just heard that Mitch Miller, former bandleader, or sing-along with Mitch" records, and former head of Columbia Records, has died at age 99.
I met him in the '50s when he would visit his wife's parents, who lived next door to our family. Very nice guy, very nice family, though I don't much care for the direction he took Columbia Records during that era.
My condolences to his family.
