Jim declared that Joe Newberry is an official "honorary ex-Rambler."  Joe says about playing with the O'Blurs: "It's like the music in my radio coming through my fingertips.  It's an honor to play with these guys.  The first party I went to when I moved to NC, I said 'that guy plays like Bill Hicks...it IS Bill Hicks!'"

Carter's store, and Tommy Thompson crashed part way through a window he leaned against.  Elaine and her friends from Sullivan Central High School's class of '77 skipped the senior prom to go hear the Ramblers at the Fold!
