    'Moon River' crooner Andy Williams dies at age 84
    By JIM SALTER and BOB THOMAS, AP
    27 minutes ago

    ST. LOUIS With a string of gold albums, a hit TV series and the signature "Moon River," Andy Williams was a voice of the 1960s, although not the `60s we usually hear about.

    "The old cliche says that if you can remember the 1960s, you weren't there," the singer once recalled. "Well, I was there all right, but my memory of them is blurred not by any drugs I took but by the relentless pace of the schedule I set myself."

    Williams' plaintive tenor, boyish features and easy demeanor helped him outlast many of the rock stars who had displaced him and such fellow crooners as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He remained on the charts into the 1970s, and continued to perform in his 80s at the Moon River Theatre he built in Branson, Mo.

    In November 2011, when Williams announced that he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer, he vowed to return to performing the following year: His 75th in show business.

    Williams died Tuesday night at his home in Branson following a yearlong battle with the disease, his Los Angeles-based publicist, Paul Shefrin, said Wednesday. He was 84...

    So sad

    I loved his music (often previewed his new records for a radio station I worked for in Michigan in the 60's) and TV show and visited his theater several times and had the occasion to meet him at a private event and a couple of times subsequently. He was so very nice. For years I got a Christmas card from him thereafter. He will be truly missed but his music will live on (I play it often) what a great legacy.

    Don't forget, it was Andy Williams who 'discovered' the Osmond family.

    I was just getting a little choked up singing Moon River along with Youtube............

    Would that we had more true ENTERTAINERS like Andy these days.

    Moon River makes me cry. It reminds me of being little and my parents dancing with each other. Life was so simple then. RIP Andy Williams. Yours is still my favorite Christmas music.
