|Hi Friends, it’s a great time to be living and breathing in clean, fresh, (it rained a little a couple of nights ago) air. Also, how wonderful to have a good set of ears to take in music.
Grateful, I guess that’s what I’m feeling. The year is bending towards the end and we all tend to take measure of how it went. Thumbs up from SpragueLand!
Yesterday morning at 9 o’clock (sounds a lot like the Beatles lyric from “She’s Leaving Home” — Wednesday morning at five o’clock, as the day begins ). Jeez, I’m going crazy! Everything is turning into Beatle related material…

This year we’re calling it a Beatles Christmas and we’ve got the rad band:
and a gorgeous set of songs:
All that’s missing is YOU. Please join us if you can make it and look below for the details.
Our man George Varga from the SD Union Tribune paper is helping get the word out and we thank him for this! Read about it HERE.
And here’s some history on the event from a long time Del Mar devotee.
See you soon folks and thanks for reading along, best, Peter
