One thought on “Veronica Swift—”Preserving the Legacy””

  1. Hi Bob
    Thank you for this show on Veronica Swift. Of course it is a great young artist. But I “discovered” Hod O’Brien at the same time. What a pianist!! I been hearing him for 2 days!! I a ashamed at my limited knowledge (but not of my joy)
