This one is for all roadgeeks like myself....

This week, the Maestro and his Musical Family bring you music

....that salutes this

Some highlights from the show include.....

Dick Dale and Ken Delo with their own version of the movie "Taxi Driver"

Bobby and Elaine with friends and their Graduation Day hijinks....

Joey Schmidt fills in for Myron Floren.....

....and Mary Lou Metzger pretends what's it like to be a starving musician

As for yours truly....I'll be doing some happy motoring this week, it's back to Bear Creek Farms on Thursday to see my old pals the Aldridge Sisters and the Otwell Twins perform live in concert!

I'll be sure to bring back pictures along with many fine memories.

Until then, keep a song in your heart and your roads free of orange barrels.
