In Response to: Play a song for me

I am a longtime reader of PAW — off and on for the last 50 years or so (my father went to Princeton). I think it is a great alumni magazine. But I particularly want to give a shout-out to W. Barksdale Maynard. His writing in PAW is always lively and knowing, warm without being too sentimental. I enjoyed “Play a song for me” in the Jan. 16 issue. I was at that sweet — and I have to say, pretty stoned — James Taylor concert in 1970, as a Harvard sophomore; it was on the night of the Princeton-Harvard football game.
