|About the author
Bob Pearson has enjoyed writing all kinds of prose and poetry most
of his adult life. He has written extensive medical articles,
newspaper editorials, and other miscellaneous works.
In 1996, he was sitting in bed reading the Sunday NY Times when
he turned to his wife of 44 years and repeated about 3 times the
fact that he loved her. Finally she turned to him and said, "How
many times are you going to say you love me?" Immediately he was
struck with an idea for a song. He got up from the bed and got
paper and pen; within an hour he had completed a beautiful love song
titled "How Many Times."
After receiving many accolades, the author was told to write more
songs in order to make a CD or tape. He did exactly that. soon he
was told that the songs were of the "show tune" variety and that he
should write a play. The author proceeded to write a musical
comedy about a day at the doctor's office, which includes the 17
songs on this CD.
Dr. Pearson comes from a musical family. His father was a
dentist who played the violin and his mother played the piano. A

at Scroon Crest in the Adirondacks. He was the lifeguard and she was
the singer. They both worked on the staff that included Alan
Arkin and Gerald Fried. They have 3 children, one of whom (youngest
daughter, Wendy) appears on 2 of the songs below.
