It was my pleasure to win a copy of John’s CD “Ole Sweet Dreams” at Orin Smith’s Memorial Jam. I’ve long admired John’s talents and this collection of songs with his daughter’s beautiful celtic tones is a treasure i’ll be enjoying for some time. Produced in Victoria at Oakstone, Dennis Ferbey.
Me and my first guitar (I purchased), Yamaha G150-A series. Lost in an apartment fire several years later. I worked 19 days straight at a fish processing plant for that guitar. A late night nightmare.
Ron Jenkins has a photo album that he has graciously agreed to let me share with you all.

My alltime favourite, always appreciated her and the truly Hot, Hot Band!
