Gene Shay's last broadcast after 60 years!

Today, from 3:00 to 6:00 is Gene Shay's last broadcast after a 60 year career in radio.  He also founded the Philadelphia Folk Festival in Schwenksville, Pa. in 1962.  I went there for 25 years!  If you have loved folk music, then you know Gene Shay's name.  

But, we have our own venerable musical site - Albert Hall.  I haven't been there this year due to vision problems driving at night, but I LOVED it when I went regularly and hope to get back again when the days grow longer.  If you haven't ever been there, you should go.  The music is wonderful!  It is a mix of folk, country, and local plus musician traveling the area.  

Here is the address and they have an excellent web site:
GPS Address: 131 Wells Mills Road (Rt. 532)
Postal Address: P.O. Box 657
Waretown, NJ 08758
