Thursday, May 13th, 2021: “The Old Man & Me” by Hootie and the Blowfish for Darius Rucker’s 55th birthday!  Happy Bday Darius!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2021: “Happy” by The Rolling Stones off of Exile on Main Street released on this date in 1972.  A double album that captures the Stones at their peak and one of the best albums in rock & roll history!

Thursday, May 6th, 2021: “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind & Fire. Played it as we get ready for another Around The Bend show tomorrow night featuring Charlton Singleton & The Sizzling 70’s. Doesn’t get more sizzling from that decade than EWF! 

Wednesday, May 5th, 2021:”Heaven” by Los Lonely Boys – for Cinco de Mayo (could have gone in a lot of directions for this, I appreciate the requests & suggestions, which I’ll file away for next year’s Cinco de Mayo celebration! – Richard Todd)
