Apollo 11 anniversary - July 20 - Alpine Valley

Post by parrothappy »

Fifty years ago today, the Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon. Will Jimmy do anything special tonight at Alpine Valley to commemorate the event? Maybe resurrecting the Walter Cronkite video that, I believe, was used during the “Beach House on the Moon” tour? I was eighteen years old that summer and had graduated from high school a month or so earlier. Ah, “The Summer of ‘69” - thanks Bryan Adams! Maybe the band could do that song tonight...,.

I was hoping for The rocket that grandpa rode, Beach House on the Moon, Window on the world, or maybe Somewhere over China. Saw a lot of footage of his sailing buddy Walter Cronkite over the anniversary coverage.
