The “With The Radio On” video is finished! I Love watching it. The joy that I felt in making it splashes out from the screen helping me re-live the fun. I am not exaggerating, it was a blast and the smiles on everyones faces radiate the Joy present. Thank you to Mark Eyer who worked as one of the cameramen and who edited the video with some final touches added by Tonja (gabryshak) Howard. Great job Mark and Tonja. Danny Gadd manned a camera also which was quite a treat given his wealth of talent and professional experience. Thank you to Mary-Jo Pietromonaco and Tonja who also operated video cameras. And a big thank you to all our fun-loving friends who dressed up in crazy outfits and brought it with their dancing and smiles. You really make the video pop! None of this would have happened without Tonja as it was her idea in the first place and she ran with it bringing it to fruition, thank you beautiful girl!!! And of course we must not forget Clay Volz as Elvis, John Halas as Uncle Sam and Richard Sabol as a perfect Wolfman. Finally a thank you to Chewy Lyons for bringing along Cliff and his great sound system and the young rock band “Blasting Love Caps” to play a set at the party.
We look forward to the next video!!
I got bells on my toes
I got a ten foot statue of the wolf-man on my patio
The neighbors complain
About all the noise
‘Cause I like to shout and I like it with the Radio on
I keep in the bathtub
With a bucket of cheese
I’ve got to lighten up my point of view
‘Cause I like to dance and I like it with the Radio on
Clear the way it’s not black or white
I’ll give you color if you give me wine
We’ll sit and listen to the radio to pass the time – (lawn chairs and blankets!)
I wear with my robe
You ain’t seen nothin’ like it since the book of Job
Your orders up give me your cup
‘Cause I like to laugh and I like it with the radio on
I had to be blind to see the light (dark sunglasses)
I never worry about the lawn (let’s fill it with lots of tents and lawn toys, slip n slides and the like!)
‘Cause I like to laugh and I like it with the Radio on
With Radio on…. (repeat and fade)
