Saturday March 14, 2009: Longing for Warmer Weather

My good friend Maureen Neville is another WJFF DJ and subbed for me this Saturday. She is an avid sailor and sun-worshiper having lived many many years in Key West. Her theme was about longing for warmer weather. She now owns a home near the delaware river. She ran the Band Box for several years, a great folk club ahead of its time in Callicoon New York. She hosted the Band Box and Riverside Cafe over the years at WJFF.
