To the Editor:

As a senior citizen, I’m disappointed again this year with the performers that were at Chevy Court on Senior days. Not since Peter Cappuccilli have we had any great names on Senior Days. During his reign as fair director, we had two outstanding shows, one at 2 p.m. and the same one at 7 p.m.

I’ve checked and there are still great performers out there still performing today — the Four Aces (not the originals), Paul Anka, Brenda Lee, and Bobby Vinton, to name a few. Is it they don’t want to spend the money to bring in these performers? Why is it they are always catering to the younger crowd? Do they think seniors don’t spend money? WRONG.

The senior population now is much older, I for one, would enjoy a local band like Stan Colella playing music from the ’50s and early ’60s instead of what we have been getting.

I haven’t been to the Fair in a few years, not even on Senior days. Until they get some music or performers that will bring back memories, I won’t be back.

NYS Fair music lineup offers nothing for senior citizens (Your letters) |

"I also would like to see Stan play again, if only to see a dead guy play music."

how bad must gas stoves once have sucked for someone to think that an electric stove was a good idea

also, just to be clear

when i talk about “keeping the means of the production in private hands” what i actually mean is keeping the rich rich and the poor poor

they’re pretty good at it
