Three way tie for pick of the week — Winter Jam 3 at the Liberty Fire Co (Spring City), The Open Mic Talent Show at Chaplins and the Bill Koss Combo at Bear Creek. Win, win, win!

AND thanks to Frank from Boyertown, Yes, Bob Denver (in the way of SNL’s Generalissimo Francisco Franco) is still dead, HOWEVER he lives on in the many tribute bands that play and fans that listen to his music. My fault I omitted the words “a Rocky Mountain High Concert.”
