      Hey guys–burn a copy for posterity of the Victoria retrospective show featuring Glen Parfitt and the Motifs alumni!! It’s one for the ages.

      My wife (who club hopped in late ’60s Victoria) loved it too. We’re both trying to imagine Valdy playing bass in a rock band. We thought he’d always been a folkie.

        Hey Richard,

        I’m going to ask Glenn if he can line up some other Victoria bands from the 60’s to come up on the show in the next few weeks. I will be letting folks know on the Facebook page for Garage grooves. We should have you and your wife up on the show to let folks know what the Victoria 60’s scene was like… 🙂 Thanks!!! Alex

      You said: 33 and a half (in reference to the RPM of an LP.) It’s actually 33 and a third RPM.
