Bob Dorr and The Blue Band Update

So I already had $200,000,000 spent before the $600,000,000 drawing last week. I didn't even have ONE number in the two sets of numbers I had. So much for a "charmed life". Better luck next time (said the Cub fans!)...
Audio mixes of the birthday party tapes, done. Video editing of the birthday party tapes, done. Now what? I was counting on that lotto money to press it up. Better luck next time (said the band leader)...
And now, A FREEZE WARNING! This sexagenarian's clematis is gonna shrivel up and wither away...
No Blue gigs again this week, but I hope you can join me Saturday night for another LIVE Backtracks Rock 'n' Roll History Radio Show (http://iowapublicradio.org/studio-one/backtracks/) If you have advance requests, you can just reply to this note, but be forewarned that my Facebook Friends have already picked out about HALF OF THE SHOW! Or call during the program, 800-772-2440 ext. 5. I answer all the calls myself between keeping the show going and running to the library to find requests, so if you get thru, let it ring, I'll answer as soon as possible. Don't forget that the program deals exclusively in songs that are at least 25 years old...
Sunday is Mr. Petersen's birthday. He's WAY older than I am. Feel free to send his CAKE to me and I'll see that he gets it (a CAKE with that many candles could be a fire hazard for people as old as he is) Happy Birthday, Jeff! (did you know they play The Masters Golf Tournament in his honor every year for his bday weekend?)...
We did get a couple more bookings this week (still need work between now and Memorial Day) (man cannot live on Ramen Noodles alone) Thanks for continuing to spread the true blue word to your town festival committee, business party planner, neighborhood block party captain, favorite casino, and watering hole...
And that's it. I'm feelin' like such a slacker with this short, not too funny/entertaining note. Better luck next time!...
See yas on The Blue Highway (next week, Friday the 13th at The Hub) Rub yer washboard fast enough to keep yer clematis warm. Happy Easter, Christians (hope yer chocolate bunny isn't hollow and yer Peeps are soft and squooshy) (spell check is havin' a hell of a time with that word) and always know that we love you. Bob Dorr & The Blue Band
