Shouts and Murmurs: A verse or two for ‘Father Tony’
January 15, 2003
While driving into Tonganoxie Saturday morning I played the same CD I usually do, a Peter, Paul and Mary that includes two songs I learned in high school: “Blowing in the Wind” and “If I Had a Hammer.” I was on the way to funeral services for Tony Molina at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. On the seat beside me was a manila folder containing pages with lyrics to the above-named songs, as well as lyrics to many others. The pages, stored carefully over three decades, are reminders of a 1960s Tonganoxie singing group — the Young Christian Minstrels.
