So, the east coast tour of Virginia(um, Gloucester,really) has come and gone.
The x99.1 morning show was about as much fun you could have without
bandaids and new pants ! Artists Nate Sparks and Judy Pancoast chimed in
with music,stories, and laughter . Hosts Neal and Karl are a rare, somewhat
extinct breed: radio personalities. The show had live entertainment, much
humor, and free donuts! For the “christmas in july” concert friday night ,we
played to a small, but merry audience. we had taken” timbuk one” to get to
the show so we were on time… (ask Judy about that)
Saturday was spent swimming,antiquing( a player banjo?) and Jay’s home
became nap central. I so appreciated Jay and his family’s hospitality !
If you have a pool that overlooks a river, you have done well in life.
( why he would bother managing artists, i do not know:)
Sunday was a blazing hot day, but, we had a show to do and we brought it.
Bena country store was a nice cozy venue(that’s what everybody says when
not too many people show up), great people, and conveniently located about a
mile from Jay’s. The owner’s young son, George became my show
sidekick,dancing like a wasp attack for most of my songs. ah, kids..
Friends of Dee’s came from Norfolk to see the show. cool people.Those
VanHook’s have great taste in music hahaAnnie’s young son,Sam was
listening to the ‘peanut butter fish’ cd
(which they had just gotten at the gig at Bena country store..but available
on line at billcrosbymusic.com 🙂
and he said,
“He is a happiness bringer.”
” Who is ? ” his mom replied.
” bill crosby. He made us all just fall in love with him…”
who could ask for a better endorsement ?
bill crosby : happiness bringer,
that has a nice ring to it….
