My Favorite St. Paddy's Day ~ 1970

Ask a New Yorker published my column today about my favorite St. Paddy's Day ~ 1970.

It was one of those days that float in and out my head and when the memories visit me, they lift my spirits.

Here's a link to the story, a link to Old Saint Paddy's and a few pictures through the years.

The single including Thank You and Everybody is a Star by Sly Stone was in heavy rotation on March 17, 1970.

That day was a keeper.

Erin go Bragh!
