This weekend we celebrated Steve Walsh from Kansas Birthday, which was on June 15. Steve and Kerry Livgren are founding members of Kansas, wrote much of their material and also both contribute vocals.

Played some Kansas tunes I had’nt heard before, the song How My Soul Cries Out For You had a ripping drum solo. New one to me, got a lot of great comments on it.

We played Sparks of the Tempest as our vinyl cut from the Point of Know Return album. Fun night with lots of unusual requests, which always leads to an interesting show. Next Saturday we’re featuring Michigan Bands, and we have a lot of good ones here.

Scott Allman and I are off for the 4th of July weekend as Classic Rock 94.9 WMMQ is presenting an All American Weekend Friday through Monday July 2-5.
