Sitting In The Park 3-17-2013 - Guest Dj Elaine Wade

Recommended Posts

Hi, welcome to my latest Sitting in the Park music show from last Sunday 3-17-2013. It was a special show because guest DJ / collector Elaine Wade came down from Wisconsin. We played all her selections off of her original 45s. Elaine brought some excellent music, some that I hadn't even heard before. You can listen to the special show here:
