Entering the last third of the spring season! One more month to go before summer officially kicks in, and two more weeks until the unofficial start of summer - Memorial Day Weekend!!!
Let's get the party started with a souther rock revival! Tomorrow - Saturday - 5/22 is the Long Island Southern Rock Jam at Overlook Beach.
Wow! Wound up with a whole show of southern rock, and LOTS of requests. Got my exercise this morning running back and forth to the vinyl library. Thanks to my fellow staffers for keeping the library straightened out enough that I could find what I was looking for! I'm not always that lucky.
