2024 Litchfield Award Winner Jenny Risley


Region members Bill & Joanna Vroman were at a concert where A couple sang Rat Pack era songs.  She sang the “Favorite Things” song from the movie, “The Sound of Music” and we suggested they do a duet with him listing more masculine favorite things.   Bill came up with a version for the AACA.  Click below for the lyrics.

AACA Illinois Region Favorite Things

The July 2023 issue of the Antique Automobile magazine has an article about automotive related sheet music.   

It spends a lot of time on the Merry Oldsmobile song and mentions a video by Fleischer Studios.  If you want to see the video you can find it on the internet archive or click here: Merry Oldsmobile Cartoon
