           Best Friend Too  by Paul Smith



About the song

In the winter of 2002 I had become sick, and my wife Darlene tended to me
throughout the whole thing.  When I was feeling somewhat better, I wanted
to thank her for all that she did.  So I wrote this song Best Friend Too.  You
can still hear in my voice some remnants of the cold.  Also, I called a
country music station WVES at 99.3 FM and requested that they play it on
our anniversary night.  To my surprise, they did!  I must say that Best
Friend Too was certainly a hit song in our house that night.  Everyone was
all smiles.  Darlene says that was the best wedding anniversary gift yet.

I recorded the broadcast then included the introduction and  the WVES
concluding logo in the song track.  I made a special trip down to Parksley,
Va. and got legal permission from the Program Director at WVES to do this.
