All Night, All Ventures

Jerry with Nokie Edwards of The Ventures (2003)Jerry and guest David Elrod (The Revtunes) host a night of music by The Ventures, playing hits and rarities. So far, ancient tapes yielded nearly half of six broadcast hours–hopefully in the not-too-dismal future, a complete rescue of the remainder of this radio special from 1984.
