Thanks for the tour of this music Mecca, Ottoman. I'm a big music fan and always enjoy these sort of articles. It's interesting to know the history behind where the artists recorded their music and this looks like a must to visit.

Thanks Samantha, I'd love to visit Cooperstown. When I saw Hank Aaron's boyhood home at Mobile's minor league stadium with all it's incredible baseball memorabilia, I knew I had to see the Baseball Hall of Fame one day. Thanks for showing me what to expect!

Hi Rob, it is a really cool place to visit. I had been to the Negro Hall of Fame in Kansas, but not the one in Cooperstown. It was so worth the wait! Thanks for mentioning Aaron's home in Mobile. I would like to see it someday too. Have a great weekend

You can't help but be impressed with the Aaron family after seeing the place! Glad to see the Hall of Fame has a great Hank Aaron section too! My blog on Hank Aaron's childhood home: https://www.travelgumbo.com/blo...ron-s-childhood-home

Thanks for a great nostalgic look at one of my baseball heroes: a great craftsman on the field, and a solid human with not a lot of "front" and a real commitment to team and to others. Some of today's players should visit!

I still have a Time magazine somewhere from the week that Hank broke Babe Ruth's record. I collected things this and recall what a big deal it was at the time (justifiably so). A nice look at a piece of classic America. I've never been to Mobile, but I'm intrigued now.

DrFumblefinger- Mobile is really worth a visit and I'm sure you'd enjoy it! I'm putting together a few pieces on Government St. in Mobile . I am so impressed by that street alone .Really one of my favorite historic streets anywhere.
