  1. You're words are welcome!

  2. Thanks for the Graham Parker!! Calderone Concert Hall was a great venue. Formerly a movie theater now I think it is a church! Saw Joan Jett there many years ago before she hit it big.

  3. yes, PLEASE! and thanks for your blog BTW!

  4. thank you for all the fine Graham Parker stuff! i was happily surprised his new album is so good - with even a few jaw-dropping songs just as jaw-droppingly good as "you can't be too strong" was, back in the day:)

  5. thank you so much for this... and happy new year !!!

  6. Mercury poisoning is my favourite.
