  1. I remember as a pre-teen, going to hear Ernest and the Trio with my family. We loved the songs and music. Is there a way to access the original music in some form? My mom still sings some of the songs in church. I would love to hear it again. This brings back good old memories. I wonder where everyone is today. Ricky Todd joined the group later and I had a crush on him at the time.
