With the passing of Lois Lilienstein, another piece of my childhood is gone.
In my younger days, my mom borrowed vinyl records from the library often. She frequently brought home albums by Sharon, Lois & Bram; I still remember the yellow elephant on the record label. I outgrew children’s music a long time ago, but if I have kids of my own, I’ll likely return to the SL&B catalogue.
Even now, “Peanut Butter (And Jelly)” sometimes pops up in my mind apropos of nothing. Until yesterday, I didn’t remember that it was an SL&B song.
So long, Lois…
