Dear neighbors,

There is a new CD by Ms. Emma Rossum, the young star of the movie, Phantom of the Opera. It is fusion jazz, light opera and contempory pop all combined in the young lady's beautiful voice and rich orchestration.

If you are a fan of KKSF Smooth Jazz then you will like these very unique performances.

Dear Alamo neighbors,

You will find Emmy Rossum, Inside Out, at most major retailers including Wal-Mart here in Alamo. If you would like a sample of the music, log on to ( and listen to my favorite, Rainy Days and Mondays.

Also, to listen to KKSF on-line, You can hear KKSF playing most afternoons at city hall and all day in the reception rooms of our library. It seems our city webmaster is a fan.

Kate, (in Alamo Texas)

Thank you Alamo neighbors for continuing our conversations,

I have a private recording, made in England, of Emmy Rossum singing several popular European hits including the Power of Love made popular in North America by Celine Deon. Michael Crawford also recorded the song, but my favorite is Nana Mouskouri's version.

The young, rich voice of Emmy adds to a unique voicing of the song and the comtemporary orchestration makes the song very today. I understand Celine and others have copyright claims so don't expect to see the song on a CD or in KKSF play soon.

My heart is still in Alamo IN although I now live in the Greater Chicago area. I appreciate being part of All things Alamo and Pop(u)lar.

Is there any way for me to hear that recording of Rossum singing the European hits?
