May 2nd Newsletter

  Hi Everyone,

So here we are, May, I just can't believe it. And of course we have the unpredictable Springtime weather. On a sad note, I do want to mention the passing of Junior Seau, former San Diego Charger NFL player. My brother, who lives in San Diego, had gone to many Charger games while Seau played and he remembers him as an awesome player. It's a sad day for anyone who loves football.

Now I'd like to look forward to some events that we've got coming up. Also, if you have a show or event that you'd like me to include in my weekly newsletter please email me at and for many other events and shows that I don't mention in my newsletters you can go to our website at and click the EVENTS tab, there you'll find a list of events for the month.
