Scott Morgan's flyers photo: Alex Sing
Well we did it! After a month of sorting through Scott Morgan's valuable stash of rock history we loaded up my jeep and sped off to Gibraltar Trade Center in Taylor, Michigan.

My crew included Drummer Al King the fantastic salesman extraordinaire, Emcee Stanley T. Madhatter, my very talented daughter Lesley and her fab photographer friend Alex Sing.
We sold a bunch of items. Lots of posters, flyers and one of a kind snap shots too. From even before the doors opened we were busy with customers. We were trying to set up and take money at the same time.
Lesley spent hours making buttons for the fans. She sold quite a few. We made Think Rational buttons as we couldn't locate Scott's missing box of Rats buttons. Hope to find them someday! The buttons are so cool.

John Troutman and Kimmer photo: Alex SingMet John Troutman a pal from Facebook. He was so great! He bought a ton of posters and stuff! And drum roll plz.... he has a huge Radio Birdman tattoo! Knew we liked him! Came home and emailed Deniz Tek about it! Frijid Pink is a Detroit area hard rock/blues band formed in 1967, best known for their version of "House of the Rising Sun," released in 1969. The initial line-up of the band included drummer Richard Stevers, guitarist Gary Ray Thompson, bassist Tom Harris, lead singer Tom Beaudry (aka:Kelly Green), and later added Larry Zelanka as off-staff keyboardist.
Our friend Jim Randolph played guitar with Pink too! They had the most fantastic booth in the whole show! Hot Pink and black. Just gorgeous. Rick gave me a think pink button which I love. Bobby Balderrama is a fantastic musician. He has played guitar with The Mysterians since he was 13 years old. He has also played with Joe "King" Carasco and The Robert Lee Band and now fronting The Robert Lee Revue. Got to meet Bobby and he was so very nice. Scott went to see him as they have known each other for many years. Scott knows positively everyone!
OH how happy I was to see them perform!!!
Thank you Scott, Al, Lesley, Hatter (RIP), and special thanks to Ms. Alex Sing for the photos!
