    I would love to listen to the songs of this gifted legend performed by those who appreciate TVZ in the newly reopened Cafe Lena.

    Headed to Mexico next week, so it seems appropriate to hear some Pancho and Lefty before I go. Hope I get to leave like Lefty. I guess Albany is about as cold as Cleveland these days.

    Love Townes, My life will run out before my work does, I’ve designed it that way.

    “If I Needed You” was our wedding song – just sayin’!

    Sounds like a great celebration, as well as an opportunity to check out the newly revamped Caffe Lena!

    The name she gave was Caroline
    Daughter of a miner
    Her ways were free
    It seemed to me
    That sunshine walked beside her
