Entering the last third of the spring season! One more month to go before summer officially kicks in, and two more weeks until the unofficial start of summer - Memorial Day Weekend!!!

Let's get the party started with a souther rock revival! Tomorrow - Saturday - 5/22 is the Long Island Southern Rock Jam at Overlook Beach.

Wow! Wound up with a whole show of southern rock, and LOTS of requests. Got my exercise this morning running back and forth to the vinyl library. Thanks to my fellow staffers for keeping the library straightened out enough that I could find what I was looking for! I'm not always that lucky.

Songs and messages of hope, light and positivity! Messages from listeners: **Hope is what we cling to when reality has left us nothing else.
**There is love for everybody if they are open to it - there's no greater gift to give or receive!
**Keep smiling - it is contagious.
**Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
**We cannot hold a torch to light another's path without brightening our own.
**Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.
