Big Ten Inch Swings Again!


The BIG TEN INCH was held on Sunday May 29. It should have been held on May 22–the fourth Sunday of the month–but on most Sundays these days the Hi-Fi Bar is taken over by hockey players who go there to drink beer after their Sunday league games. They had no league game on May 29, due to the Memorial Day weekend, so The BIG TEN INCH was able to take place without being bothered by non-believers.

(The next BIG TEN INCH will take place on the 31 because there is no league game that day also.)

In spite of the three day weekend–maybe because of it–there was a good turnout of folks with 78s in hand: Jukebox Jonny, Red Wing Mark, Alex De Laszlo, Adam Lore, Rich Sibelo and first timers Justin CollectorScum and John Clemente. As always, The BIG TEN INCH was hosted by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus. Plus, there was pizza–from our favorite pizza joint: Stromboli’s! And if that weren’t enough, official Boogaloo Bag photographer Nancy “Jeannie” Gardner made cookies: chocolate crinkles!!! Man, those were good!!!! We understand that she will make something even more special for the next BIG TEN INCH. Watch this space for details.
