Radio Free Athens

From R@T 

This week’s playlist has been largely influenced by thinking about how the pandemic has affected friendships. I definitely miss seeing many people on a regular basis.  I also had to throw in a Charlie Daniels song after he passed away this week. It reminded me of what was probably the first big show that I saw in 1977 or 1978 at Legend Valley (Buckeye Lake) music center. It was The Pleasant Mountain Boys, McGuffey Lane, The Allman Brothers Band and The Charlie Daniels Band. I hope you are all doing well and that you are staying close to your friends.
