Next week,
It will be the July 4th, so I'll be playing only American bands like the Blasters, Johnny Cakes and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypo, the Ramones and Blondie, so if ya have any suggestions, let me know or send them my way and I'll be sure to play them.

For RRW #38, I'll be hitting the Pool, so if ya have any songs about swimming, pools, skinny dipping or anything else in that vein, let me know.
