Alan Tripp is 102 years old, and he's seen a lot in his life. He lived through the Great Depression, worked in advertising, spent some time in broadcasting, and even wrote a few books. But there was one thing that he always wanted to do but never got around to doing it. Until now.
He has always wanted to be a songwriter and now, at the age of 102, has not only written a bunch of new songs but just released his first album.
His writing partner is an 88-year-old jazz pianist named Marvin Weisbord. Together, they might be the oldest songwriting duo to ever release an album.
They met at a retirement community near Philadelphia, where they both live and produced eight songs for an album called the "Senior Song Book."
They wrote all the songs together and hired ten singers and musicians to record them.
