We stayed home this past weekend and were boring so no special photos or anything but....

Benefit     Harold Lepidus did a lot of writing for Boston Rock back in the day, he had a column called the Boston Harold. (He was also one of Miss Lyn's roommates in Allston at that time) We just heard from him because he's involved with a new Tom Rush documentary that he's proud of. Tom was a folkie but got played mucho on WBCN in their heyday (late 60's).
