Harry Chapin done well

Doc and Wife Carla teamed up to sing Mr. Tanner in a way that would have made Harry Chapin proud.

A couple who didn’t know about the event saw the lights, heard the music and were made to feel welcome.

  1. A thoroughly enjoyable evening! So sorry we won’t have this “treat” in September. Looking forward to the October session.

  2. I saw Harry Chapin live on November 3, 1976, at Houck Stadium. I used my key to the field house to go in early and meet him, not backstage, but in a locker room. Seemed like a nice person to me. Gone too soon at age 38.

  3. Hi Ken, I was wondering if you knew a Cape Central graduate from the early 1970’s named Jeff Schultz. I used to work with him at Landgraf lumber company on Independence and have trying to find him for several years. Do you or any of the readers know how to contact him? I would appreciate any help you can give.
