MANHATTAN — Time is running out to get your sweetheart a gift for Valentine’s Day.
The Little Apple Barbershop Chorus in Manhattan is once again providing a unique gift idea, through the power of music, as heard on the KMAN Morning Show Tuesday.
      Singing 3 extended
That is Charades, one of four Little Apple Chorus barbershop quartets this week delivering singing valentines. Charades consists of Steve McKinzie, Leonard Purvis, Ken Garwick and Tom Fish. Spokesman Mike Shepherd says the tradition of delivering singing valentines has become an annual tradition.
      Shepherd so much fun

Shepherd explains what the process is like as they visit each individual loved one.
