Show #280 - John Hall (10/21/16)
John Hall has been able to live two distinctly different lives.  In one, he led the Seventies soft-rock outfit Orleans, co-writing their two big hits “Dance With Me” and “Still the One.”  In the other, he was a US Representative for New York’s 19th District from 2007 to 2011. John’s...
Show #279 - Banjo Nickaru & Western Scooches (9/29/16)

Show #278 - Tiffany (9/22/16)

Frankie Avalon, Fabian & Bobby Rydell (concert review)

Golden Boys: Frankie Avalon, Fabian, and Bobby Rydell - Rose Music Center - 8/6/16 (concert review)

A surprisingly satisfying trip down Memory Lane

Honestly, you just don’t know what you’re going to get at a concert these days.  Many artists feel they only have to play 60 minutes, despite the grumblings of fans leaving the venue.  That’s what made the Golden Boys’ concert such a pleasant surprise - a two-hour, fun-filled show from three performers whose average age is 74.

Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell were all teen idols from the 1950's and early 60's who all grew up in the same neighborhood in South Philadelphia, and all benefited from heavy exposure on Dick Clark's American Bandstand.  They’ve been touring together as the Golden Boys for over 30 years now.
