FM #324 Memory Cafe Music Session - 7/27/20 (audio)

FM #324 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 324 in the series. 

This session shares the Franklin Senior Center “Memory Cafe” music session held on Monday, July 27, 2020. Ariel Doggett introduces Ray Valente who plays some toe-tapping music. He introduces each song with an anecdote or bit of interest about the song.

While everyone was muted during the concert, there was plenty of singing and dancing. At the end, Ariel took the mute off so all could thank Ray with a round of well deserved applause.

The concert runs just about 60 minutes, so let’s listen to Ray Valente play his music.
