Special Show Blog Post: The Twist And Shout

Twist and Shout


I'm enjoying the fried catfish at Cafe Reconcile in Central City last Thursday when Marc Gretchel, the owner of Washington, D.C.'s most infamous music club walks in with his daughters who are going to Tulane.  Catfish can wait - I gotta get this guy on my radio show.  

Musicians will tell you that music club owners are a dime a dozen but they wouldn't say that about Marc.  Marc and his club was the one in a million.  But don't take it from me, his club became the focus of a Superbowl halftime music performance.  You can read about it in the above blog while we play the music of the club and recount some memories.   And if you spent some time at the Twist and Shout (or Tornado Alley) send me an e-mail and I'll get them on the air (or leave a comment on this playlist or this blog.)  To hear the show, click here.
