It’s Almost Charlie Eble Day!
To my friends and family, Alex is almost back home and ready to return to work for the Cleveland Indians homestand, and we are in NY – at the Seneca Alleghany Casino tonight and on to a park and photo adventure tomorrow, arriving in Saratoga Springs sometime Friday. This is the weekend of Charlie Eble Day, and if you don’t know what that means, please listen to these podcasts: https://www.spreaker.com/show/charlie-eble-day-may-19-2019-cafe-lena.
On Sunday starting at noon for a mere $5 if you cannot get up to Café Lena in Saratoga Springs, NY., you can stream the concert benefit on the Café Lena Concert Window. You will not be disappointed with the talent, including our own, Alex Hale. Alex will return to NY while our house is cared for by friends. The benefit is produced by Joel Moss http://managramusic.com/site/, not only is he my brother, he is a phenomenon human!
If you come up to Saratoga Springs, please stop by Uncommon Grounds https://www.uncommongrounds.com/ for their great coffee, tea, bagels, etc., and catch a glimpse of my sister-in-law’s (Terri-Lynn) photography. Feel free to make an offer and purchase one of her magnificent visual creations.
On behalf of http://newclevelandradio.net/, I want to thank all those involved in Charlie Eble Day beginning with Sara Craig and her crew at Café Lena. The Mayor of Saratoga Springs, Meg Kelly (and if you are from the area vote for her re-election!) A special thank you to the many musicians in the area that will provide their time, talent, and love for Charlie in putting this event together. It is our way of sharing with Joel Moss how special Charlie was not only to him but to all of us! He was Joel’s brother from another mother, and he will always have a place in our hearts. To Charlie’s sister Patty – thank you for allowing us to honor your brother, not just this Sunday but for years to come as a scholarship fund will be set up in his name to train future production engineers the art he so loved.
Charlie may not be with us in person but you surely can feel his spirit in all of us, even those who barely knew him.

Getting closer. Please start blasting this out on your social media platforms…especially the fact that it will be STREAMED LIVE ON CONCERT WINDOW so people can check in from anywhere, enjoy the music and contribute to this worthwhile tribute to our friend, Charlie.
