Welcome to A Mouthful of Pennies!

A Mouthful of Pennies is brought to you by Robert Calero (being me–Bobby). I’m a librarian by trade, a father by nature. Whenever I have a bit of time left in the day I try to slip out a post or two to present some thoughts and sounds on what I feel is some of the greatest music ever recorded.

Besides maintaining this here blog, I am also an avid writer and dedicated poet. Some of my work can be found here:

    HI your writing is amazing. Im doing a little research on Victoria Spivey. We had a mutual friend who passed. Love one hour mama. I only had Ida’s version of it.

      Wow, thank you for your kind comments. Yeah, Queen Victoria was certainly a one in a million performer. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you again.

    I came across your blog by pure chance, I Googled Limonada (looking for a Lebanese music band by that name) and I fell upon your post about Limonada and the music list. Pretty cool 🙂 I like your playlists and you introduced me to some good Latin musicians 🙂 I wish you had a category for the playlists though 🙂

      Hey thanks for stopping by and I’m glad that you dug the tunes! I’m not sure what you mean by “a category for the playlists” though. If you explain what you mean, perhaps I can accommodate you. If you mean a category that will bring up all the mixtapes I’ve posted they should all be under either “MixTapes” or “A Mouthful of Pennies Presents.” Anyway, I hope you continue to check out my other posts and thanks again!
