Today's Tune: "A Whiter Shade Of Pale"
By Procol Harum

Happy Birthday to Gary Brooker! English singer, songwriter and pianist was born in Hackney, London and grew up in the seaside resort of Southend On Sea, Essex, England. He is a founding member of the band Procol Harum, a classic rock group, who have played and influenced a wide variety of musical styles.

Procol Harum was formed in 1967, and recorded a #1 single (in UK etc., #5 in US) straight away. That song is "A Whiter Shade Of Pale", which is still their most popular creation, and our 'Today's Tune' for today.
